Coronation a Day to Remember for New Alsager Community

More than 100 neighbours celebrated the King’s Coronation with a huge street party at our Lawton Green development of new homes in Alsager.

Residents at the development on Lawton Road gathered for an afternoon of music, food and games, with Wain Homes also making a £300 donation to ensure the party went with a swing.

Every neighbour at the new development was invited to the event, held on open green space in the centre of the site.

The party was the idea of a group of Lawton Green homeowners as a way of bringing the new community together.

Lynne Gammon, a member of the group who has lived at Lawton Green for two years, said: “We had the idea for a street party because we knew that quite a few neighbours had moved into the area from other parts of the country and didn’t know anyone in Alsager and didn’t have any family close by. We thought it would be a great way for neighbours to get to know each other.

“Jemma Frame, Emma Plant, Heidi Moore, Sarah Maile and Stephanie Jones and myself met regularly over a number of months to plan the event. All of the hard work has paid off with everybody having a fantastic day.

“Wain Homes has been very supportive and their donation for decorations such as bunting and balloons and games for the children really added to the day.”

Wain Homes is building more than 250 two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at Lawton Green and sales director, Andrew Blundell, said: “It was no surprise that a street party of this scale happened at Lawton Green.

“There is a fantastic community spirit growing day-by-day at this development and special thanks go to Lynne and the team of volunteers for all their hard work in making this a day this community will never forget.”
