Shinfield Pupils Seal The Launch Of Linden Homes' Latest Development
30 Nov 2016

Linden Homes Chiltern has partnered up with Shinfield residents, schools, councillors and businesses to mark the launch of its brand new housing development, Shinfield Meadows.

The award-winning housebuilder organised and supported community events during December, including a time capsule project with Shinfield St Mary’s C.E. Junior School and a stakeholder evening to officially open the Linden Homes show homes and marketing suite.

Linden Homes also provided a Christmas tree and raffle prizes for Shinfield Infant School’s Christmas Fair, held on the same day.

The time capsule project saw pupils from Shinfield St Mary’s collect recent cinema tickets, popular books and newspaper cuttings, to give future Shinfield Meadows residents a reminder of the past in many years to come.

20 children from Shinfield St Mary’s school along with PSHE teacher Mr Paul Arnold, helped Linden Homes and Lenny Linden, the company mascot, bury the time capsule at the Shinfield Meadows’ development which will eventually be home to a neighbourhood of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom houses, and 1 and 2 bedroom apartments.

Lenny Linden had a busy day as he also ensured the safe delivery of a 9ft Christmas tree and raffle prizes to Shinfield Infant School earlier that day in time for their annual Christmas Fair. This year is the second year Linden Homes has supported the school’s festive activities.

The day concluded with an exclusive evening viewing of Woodland Edge, the first phase of 3, 4 and 5 bedroom houses at Shinfield Meadows. Attendees from Wokingham Borough Council, Finchampstead FC, Shinfield Parish Council and Reading University were among the first to view the show houses and marketing suite, receiving a tour from Linden Homes Chiltern’s sales and marketing director, Simon Pendlebury.

Simon commented: “Linden Homes are committed to providing ongoing support to the wider local community in Shinfield.

“It was fantastic to welcome the children of Shinfield St Mary’s School and we hope the pupils had fun collecting their treasures to bury for our future residents to potentially find in later years.”

Linden Homes’ new collection of homes are part of Shinfield Parish’s exciting development programme which, when complete, will provide 1,200 new homes, a new primary school, a food store, commercial space, recreation grounds and open spaces.

A number of these homes are eligible for the Help to Buy scheme, based on an equity loan of up to 20% of the property price which allows buyers to put down a deposit of as little as 5% and own 100% of the home.
