Howzat! Developer Stumps Up Cash For Local Village Cricket Club
11 Apr 2014

CONTINUING to build on its community links – developer Linden Homes has stumped up a donation to a cricket club in the North Yorkshire village of Thorpe Willoughby.

The village’s cricket club netted the cash from Linden Homes at the recent unveiling of the house builder’s show home at the new Willeby Heights development.

The presentation of £250 – which will help to pay for new cricket nets and astro turf – was made to one of the club’s founders and current chairman Dennis Powell, by Linden Homes sales manager Julie Hubbard.

Julie said: “As a company building in a number of village locations, we are always looking for worthy and valued community causes we can support.

“The combined cricket, football and village social club facilities mean that they can continue to be enjoyed by existing members and hopefully our own residents in the future.”

Dennis Powell added: “Our thanks to Linden Homes for their generous support – the money will be put to excellent use to further enhance our facilities.”

Located close to the town of Selby, Willeby Heights boasts a wonderful selection of 149 carefully designed three and four-bedroom homes – offering plenty to choose from when it comes to design, lifestyle and choice.

The first homes have been sold from plan, being snapped up by home hunters seeking a tranquil yet thriving location for a family home or a place to relax and enjoy life.

The Willeby Heights sales centre is open daily from 10.30am until 5pm. Alternatively call the sales team on 0844 417 0893.
