Developer Moves From Bricks And Mortar For Flora And Fauna In School Support

YOUNGSTERS at a Stamford school are a step closer to being able to move lessons outdoors to enjoy learning about the local environment and nature – thanks to Linden Homes Midlands.

The award-winning house builder has presented a donation to St Augustine’s Catholic Voluntary School in its quest to develop a designated outside learning space – with wildlife garden, tree planting, fire pit and wildlife surveillance/ tracking equipment.

The school has already begun to plan the impressive project, and put elements of the environment scheme – which is expected to cost in the region of £2,000 – into place.

Deputy head teacher Emma Houlton said: “Our passion is the development of our children as investors in the future of our community and environment. We greatly appreciate Linden Homes’ contribution which will certainly go some way to benefit our project.”

Linden Homes Midlands’ sales manager Bev Bray added: “This is a wonderful community project which we are delighted to support in some way. We very much look forward to seeing the scheme progress and flourish, and the children enjoying their outdoor learning.”

Meanwhile, Linden Homes’ long-standing association with Stamford is continuing – following the recent launch of its new The Brambles development.

The development, located off Casterton Road, will offer an exclusive range of 15 traditional four-bedroom family homes.

The first homes are due for completion this summer.
