14/09/2016 - Prize winners announced

Lucky prize winners have been receiving their prizes following a competition held during our first appearance at The Shrewsbury Flower Show last month.

We are currently developing schemes of apartments for the over 55s at sites across the county and our developments at Ellesmere Road, Shrewsbury, Bicton Shrewsbury and Holyhead Road, Oswestry are set to see first residents move in next year.

First prize winner Jessica Pannett of Bicton won £100 of spa vouchers and was delighted saying: “I‘ve visited the Oakwood scheme in Wellington through my work with AgeUK and was impressed. I’m a keen gardener and have organised many trips for older people, including breaks to Tuscany and Iceland.”

Local teacher Fred Grimstead, who teaches at Greenfields Primary School local to the new Withywood scheme, said: “This is perfect for Christmas! Our school created a garden for the flower show this year and attained the judge’s achievement award.”

Other prizes included a food hamper and basket of Prosecco.
