When a community in Hampshire needed a hand to repair a special public map on its village green, our Guildford region stepped in to help.
The Millennium Map was unveiled at Jubilee Green in Upper Froyle in time for the 2000 celebrations but unfortunately its condition has deteriorated over the years.
It was one of three created by combining the works of 15 local artists, so it has a rare significance. We decided to chip in with £500 which we gave to the parish council to help set the map’s restoration in motion and also to fit an Ordnance Survey version on the back.
Our Guildford region is in the area constructing 58 high quality new homes at the former Treloar College, which will become Froyle Park.
Linden Homes Guildford managing director Peter Youll said: “This is a special feature of the village and a millennium reminder of the community’s unique history – so we’re very proud to do what we can to help preserve it.
“The homes we are building and refurbishing from the existing historic buildings will deliver a new neighbourhood of stunning homes that fit into their surroundings. Helping the community protect its map is all part of arriving here.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
