Community Project 2018

As part of the Graduate scheme at Redrow, every year the graduates take part in a Community Project. It is a great opportunity to give back to local communities, as well as putting all our skills and knowledge that we’ve learnt so far to the test!  Previous projects have included a fairy garden at Hope House Hospice, and constructing a Viking Longboat out of sustainable materials at a Primary school in Yorkshire.

This year we’ll be supporting Ysgol Coeg y Gof, a Welsh language junior school in Pentrebane, Cardiff. The school has suffered a spout of vandalism, and with a lack of funding, the school have struggled to provide a nice outdoor environment for the children.  We’ve been tasked with helping revamp their existing outdoor areas, to provide safe, secure and fun environments for the students. With three outdoor areas needing redeveloping, we’ll certainly have our work cut out, but we’re all looking forward to working together and getting our teeth stuck into this exciting project.

Set with £0 budget, we’ll all be relying on our negotiating skills to source the skills, materials and help needed to complete the project. With the project launching in April, we’ll be completing the big build in August! We’ve got some exciting plans so far so check back here to keep up with our progress!
