Work begins on new community facilities after ground-breaking ceremony in Felpham 

Residents in and around Felpham are to benefit from impressive new community facilities thanks to a special project by Homebuilders Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.

The five star housebuilders have started work on creating an all-encompassing community centre - with covered play and activity areas, meeting rooms, changing rooms and hospitality provisions. And locals will also benefit from an exciting new skate park. 

Councillors and other representatives from Arun District Council gathered with Barratt David Wilson employees to mark the beginning of the build at a ground-breaking ceremony. 

 

 
 

 

 

Work Experience leads to a permanent job

Thomas Talman recently contacted the Commercial Director asking for work experience, he is fully certificated City and Guilds L3 Diploma in bricklaying but had limited practical experience.

Anthony Dimmick our Community Liaison Officer, arranged to meet Thomas on site at Swanmore where he was inducted by Kieran Stanborough, signed a work experience placement contact with Barratt Homes and then commenced work experience with Quayside Brickwork. Thomas fitted in very well and impressed the gang he was working with, he has now been offered employment with Quayside. 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

KICK 4 ALFIE

Barratt David Wilson Homes were very proud to run a charity football event to raise funds and awareness for such a good cause.

 Alfie is a happy 6 year old boy. He has a condition called X-linked  Hyper IgM Syndrome.  It's a  condition that affects the immune system and only occurs in males. Alfie is prone to catching recurrent infections that could be life threatening.  Alfie receives weekly infusions of Immunoglobulins and is also on permanent antibiotics. The permanent cure for his condition is either a Bone Marrow transplant or Cord Blood Stem Cell transplant from a matching donor.

Marwells Zany Zebras

 

From 16th July to 25th September, the city of Southampton is being invaded by a herd of awesome zebra sculptures, brightening up the pavements, enlivening the parks, adding vibrancy to the high street and, most importantly, smiles to thousands of visitors and residents.

 

Barratt Homes is supporting this event through the sponsorship of ‘Henman the Zebra’.  Henman was designed by Rachel Blackwell and is located at Queens Park/Platform Road, Southampton.  With Henman you get the sense that you’re spinning around and around in a beautiful country setting where the land and sky revolve in a way that is reminiscent of zebra stripes.  Look out for quirky buildings, mushroom houses, button flowers, buzzy bees and fairies floating away on dandelion clock seeds.
