As part of an altogether woody initiative, Peveril has, this year, committed to donate £15 to The Woodland Trust for every home which it sells in 2013. In return, the trust will turn the monetary donation into saplings and also use it for the careful nurturing of trees and woodlands across the country.
The green-fingered group, from the Holbrook Group of Brownies and Guides, planted a willow and birch tree at the company’s Beaurepaire at Alton Manor development, which features a selection of three- and four-bedroom homes.
Verena Skelton, Brown Owl for the Holbrook Group of Brownies and Guides, comments: “We were delighted to be involved in the planting exercise. Planting trees and learning about looking after the world is part of their ‘World Issue’ badge. They have to think about the impact which we have all around the world by our actions and learn how we can improve the quality of life for others, including animals and birds.”
In addition to the hands-on planting exercise, Peveril also gave the Brownies and Guides book vouchers as a thankyou for taking part.
Angela Thomas, sales and marketing manager for Peveril Homes, comments: “It was great to be able to welcome the local Brownies and Guides to our site – and we hope that they enjoyed their morning of planting on what was a very cold day!”

The development is perfectly situated off Nailers Way, in Belper, Derbyshire. With the unspoilt natural beauty of the Peak District on the doorstep and a wealth of local amenities available, it’s no wonder that this thriving market town is a popular place to call home.
