The developer continued its tradition of donating a Christmas tree to the Park Lane Centre in New Woodside ahead of the Frost Fair which took place at the weekend.
Staff from Bellway’s The Pastures development in New Woodside also donated boxing gloves and shorts signed by boxer Richie Woodhall during a recent visit to the development. They were the star prize in the raffle at the Frost Fair.
Bellway Sales Manager Marie Richards said: “We have a fantastic relationship with the Park Lane Centre and are always keen to help out in any way.
“Donating the Christmas tree has become a tradition in New Woodside. We also wanted to find a good home for the signed gloves and shorts Richie Woodhall gave us. What better way than to help support the local community?”
The Frost Fair took place on Saturday at the Park Lane Centre. It was the first time the event had been held and was such a success that the organisers are already talking about repeating it next year.
The star attraction, apart from Santa, was an artificial ice rink provided by Madely Town Council. There was also a farm on wheels, a craft fair, stalls and games.
Manager of the Park Lane Centre Jane Bellingham said: “We were delighted with how successful this event was. We were busy all day and everyone had a fantastic time. We had really good feedback all round, from visitors and stallholders.
“We’d like to thank Bellway for donating our Christmas tree again and for the signed boxing gloves from Richie Woodhall.
“We’re grateful to everyone who supported the event in any way, including Madely Town Council who were also very generous.”
Bellway is building 186 homes at The Pastures just around a corner from the community centre and has been a partner in the regeneration of New Woodside from the outset.
