Developers Team Up For Early Season Treat For Pocklington Resident
27 Aug 2014

With the new footballing season getting under way, one Pocklington resident is still celebrating Germany’s World Cup win – thanks to local developers.

Linden Homes North, which is building the Wilberforce Manor development in the town, and Lindum York – the construction company overseeing the adjacent health centre – teamed up to organise a World Cup neighbours competition.

The two companies invited local residents to predict the winners of this summer’s tournament, stumping up a £100 cash prize.

The winner was Geoff Ullyott – and he was presented with his prize by Linden Homes site manager Gary Aspinall and Lindum York site manager Chris Shaw.

Gary said: “Having construction work going on in your neighbourhood can be difficult at times and, with two different building sites in action, we wanted to show our appreciation to the local residents for their patience and understanding so we organised this as a bit of fun by inviting predictions of the teams to reach the World Cup final and the overall winner.”

Linden Homes is currently enjoying success at its Wilberforce Manor development, where a stunning selection of 99 stylish two, three, four and five-bedroom homes are being built.

A number of the new homes have been reserved off plan, with savvy customer snapping up their dream home in time for a late summer / autumn move.

Interest in the development has continued to grow since the recent opening of the fabulous four-bedroom Lowthorpe show home.

This house type is perfect as a family home, offering generous living, entertaining and dining space on the ground floor – thanks to a wonderful open plan kitchen / dining room and separate lounge.

All four bedrooms and family bathroom are located on the first floor, with the master bedroom enjoying en-suite facilities.

The show home and sales and marketing suite are open daily from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively, contact the sales team on 08444 175760.
