All Hands on Decking for Whitchurch School Makeover

The grounds of a Whitchurch infants’ school were given a seasonal makeover thanks to a team of volunteers from Wain Homes.

Staff at Whitchurch CE Infant and Nursery Academy on Station Road approached us asking for help to spruce up the grounds and give all the fencing and woodwork a fresh lick of paint.

A team of nine volunteers jumped at the chance to help and were joined by five employees from Stanza Style Interiors, the company behind the interior design of the show homes at the Talbot Manor development close to the school.

Sarah Cope, Principal at Whitchurch CE Infant & Nursery Academy, said: “A massive thank you to the team from Wain Homes for coming to our rescue.

“The team worked so well together and they clearly took pride in their work, ensuring our grounds have never looked better. 

“It’s great that a housebuilder cares about the local community to the point where they volunteer their time to help out and make a place the very best it can be.

“We would definitely invite them back; their work has made a huge improvement which will benefit everyone in our school.”

We are currently building a range of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom homes at Talbot Manor on Alport Road in Whitchurch and recently opened two show homes styled using eco-friendly and sustainable furniture and fabrics.

The volunteering was part of our Helping Hands initiative which will see more than 300 employees give a day back to helping in their local community.

Wain Homes North West Managing Director, Richard Chamberlain, said: “Our role as a responsible builder means we care about the communities we build in, and we’re proud that everyone who works for us does too.

“As soon as the request came in for help, our team was raring to go and I know they all felt a real sense of satisfaction in doing such worthwhile activities for the school.

“This is a great example of our Helping Hands scheme making a real difference and we look forward to getting involved in more community initiatives as we continue to celebrate our 50th anniversary.”

Wain Homes North West is now looking for more charities and community groups who would benefit from Helping Hands. To request support, just email
