Stowupland housebuilder celebrates awards success with contractors barbecue

Employees at a new homes location in Stowupland celebrated winning a prestigious industry award with a staff barbecue.

Oak Farm Meadow is a new development of Linden Homes properties being built by Vistry Group in the village.

Site manager Paul Osborne organised the barbecue as a thank you to his team for their hard work, after he won a Quality Award in the National House Building Council’s Pride in the Job competition this year. The awards are presented for excellence in construction and site management. Vistry Eastern supplied the catering for the event.

Paul said: “The barbecue was to say thank you and to show our appreciation to the trades, office-based staff and sales team at Oak Farm Meadow for their hard work and attention to detail.

“We had representatives from the trades attending the barbecue and it was fantastic to have everybody together to celebrate their success and the NHBC award.

“This award is a team effort and without everybody’s input, our site would not have won. It proves that there is no I in team and it is all about everyone working together.”

Vistry is building 143 new energy-efficient homes at Oak Farm Meadow under the Linden Homes brand, including 93 houses for private sale and 50 homes provided as affordable housing for local people through rent or shared ownership.

The housebuilder is also providing a host of eco-benefits at the location, including a community orchard, woodland areas and a wildlife meadow.

Rob Church, managing director of Vistry Eastern, said: “We were only too pleased to provide the catering for a barbecue to celebrate the success of our award-winning team at Oak Farm Meadow.

“The whole team are a real asset to the company and have demonstrated exceptional enthusiasm and dedication to the job, so this was a much deserved thank you from everyone at Vistry Eastern.”

There’s currently a choice of three, four and five-bedroom houses available to reserve at Oak Farm Meadow, with prices starting from £314,995.
