Children from a Gamesley nursery enjoyed a special storytime, thanks to a Yorkshire-based housing company.

Youngsters from Kinderview Nursery, based at St Margaret’s Primary School, were invited by homebuilder Taylor Wimpey to its new development Laurel View in Glossop for a stick man storytelling session.

They heard a special reading of Julia Donaldson’s ‘Stick Man’ – delivered by Maureen Close – before receiving a tour of the show homes and a goodie bag filled with healthy treats.

Louise Jackson and Suzanna Bradley, managers of Kinderview Nursery, said: “We would like to thank everyone at Taylor Wimpey for organising such a lovely day out for the children.

“We all had a wonderful time seeing the paintings in the show homes and the goodie bags were the perfect end to the day!”

The development on North Road features 150 new homes – with a mix of three, four and five bedroom designs.

Since its launch earlier in the year, Taylor Wimpey has delivered a special health and safety presentation to a number of local primary schools, as well as making a £128,100 contribution to High Peak Borough Council.

Anne Bagshaw, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, adds: “We’re delighted that the children had fun viewing our show homes.

“We’re always keen to do as much as possible to support the local communities around our developments as it’s these idyllic settings and friendly neighbours that make our properties so special.”

The event was held to mark the launch of the developer’s brand new four-bedroom Shelford home and five-bedroom Haddenham property at the North Road site.
