Town Mayor of Stanley opens new show homes with local pupil

Gleeson Homes was joined by the Town Mayor of Stanley, Councillor Carole Hampson and her husband John Hampson for the opening of the brand new show homes at the popular Holmside Grange development in Stanley.  The £8 million project consists of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes available to buy now with prices starting from just £97,995.

Gleeson Homes Operations Director Ed Alder and Sales Manager Christine Douglas took the guests around the brand new show homes.  The Town Mayor of Stanley, Carole Hampson commented, “I am very impressed with how affordable the homes are for local people. We are committed to supporting good quality housing developments that meet the needs of local people who want to own a home of their own.”

Another key attendee was 9 year old Aimee, a pupil at Bloemfontein Primary School.  Gleeson Homes invited pupils from the nearby school to enter a competition to design their dream bedroom.  The winning design, a dinosaur theme, was then replicated by Gleeson’s team of interior designers in one of the new show homes.  Well-deserved winner Aimee attended the event with her mum and Head of the primary school Laura Liddell, to receive her prize.

Aimee’s mum explained, “Aimee was thrilled to win the Design a Bedroom competition, being able to see her design come to life in the show home was so exciting for us both!”

Christine Douglas, Sales Manager for Gleeson Homes said, “Our new homes are proving really popular with local people due to their affordable prices and mortgage repayments are often cheaper than local rent levels.  All our houses include a driveway and front and rear gardens and we also offer a range of schemes to assist first time buyers, such as the Government backed Help to Buy.  Holmside Grange is perfect for buyers looking to live close to shops, schools and other amenities.”

MJ Gleeson has been voted the most sustainable company in the UK due to the housebuilder’s use of environmentally friendly materials such as gravel on driveways, commitment to Living Wage and working closely with local communities in which they build through the Gleeson Community Matters scheme.

In addition to promoting home ownership to local young people and helping them to get onto the property ladder Gleeson is dedicated to making a difference in the community, by providing job opportunities for local people, offering apprenticeship schemes and providing sponsorship for local junior sports teams.

The Sales Office and Show Homes at Holmside Grange are open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm.  For more information click here.
