It was great to visit Lovell Homes new Lockside housing development, which will see over 250 modern homes built in Birchills.
I heard how Lovell is encouraging more women to pursue a career in construction. I spoke with Jenni, a trainee carpenter working on site who is studying for her NVQ Level 3 in Carpentry. It was fantastic to see how rewarding she is finding the role and the great work she is doing to encourage other women into the construction sector.
I also heard from Lovell how committed they are to ensuring that the development will benefit the local community. They have done some brilliant work so far, from donating to local charities to working with local environmental group WASUP to carry out regular litter picks in the area. If you have a community project or event you would like Lovell to get involved with, you can contact them on 07989984193.
