(L to R) Marc Taylor collects the award from Gordon Storey
-- Twyford-based house-builder Millgate Homes has been recognised for its work in the community, picking up an award from the Twyford Village Partnership.
Millgate Homes was presented with the ‘Environmental Award’ for the work which it completed for Twyford Age Concern last month. The garden at Age Concern was in need of an overhaul. After hearing of its plight, Millgate Homes stepped in to help.
As well as funding some of the work, Millgate Homes helped to coordinate the project, which took four weeks to complete, by organising for some of its suppliers to donate their time and materials. Where it had previously been just a lawn, the new landscaped garden now includes a paved walkway, seating area, water feature and beautiful plants, which members are now able to enjoy.
Marc Taylor, commercial director at Millgate Homes, collected the award at the ceremony. He comments: “We were honoured to receive this award. Being a member of the local community, we are committed to playing our part in supporting other organisations in the area.
“Having worked with Age Concern before, when we helped to fund and build a conservatory last year, we know how much having this garden means to the members and how grateful they are for any help which they receive. This is why we were happy to take on the project.”
The award will now take pride of place among Millgate’s other accolades which include a recent win for ‘Best Family Home’ at the Evening Standard’s New Homes Awards 2012.
