COTSWOLD HOMES HELPS THIRSTY THORNBURY SCOUTS

Tue, 28 January

Thanks to a local housebuilder, cool summer drinks for thirsty Thornbury Scouts will be a feature of the 1st Thornbury Scout Headquarters when refurbishment of the Scout Hall at Sinclair Hall in Park Road is complete.

Cotswold Homes Ltd, which is building new homes in nearby Tytherington, has contributed £200 towards the cost of a new refrigerator when the 40-year-old kitchen is replaced and upgraded to meet current hygiene standards and improve ease of use.

In addition to seven Scout section meetings each week the premises also host several local community groups.

Welcoming Cotswold Homes’ support, Dave Johns, chair of the Executive Committee of 1st Thornbury Scouts’ said: ‘We have had an encouraging response to the appeal we launched in November and I hope that more local firms will follow Cotswold Homes’ example by providing financial support.

‘We have to raise £3,200 to replace the kitchen facilities but if just four other firms each donate £200 one of those thousands will have been secured.’

Commenting on her firm’s support for the project, Cotswold Homes’ director of sales and marketing, Terri Hayes-Pugh, said: ‘We are always keen to put something back into the local communities in which we are active.

‘Since we took the wraps off our fully-furnished showhome at The Paddocks in Tytherington, many Thornbury residents have been taking an interest in the new homes so we are keen to respond by supporting an organisation like Thornbury Scouts.’

The Tytherington showhome, a Fulbrook, is the first of its type to be designed and built by Cotswold Homes.

Both its spacious kitchen breakfast suite and the lounge, entered by double doors, have French doors giving access to the garden for alfresco living.

We are always keen to put something back into the local communities in which we are active.
