Bromford brings Christmas cheer to Lydney
IT'S beginning to feel a lot like Christmas at Bromford Homes'
Oakdale development in Lydney as shared
ownership sales colleagues bring a bit of the festive spirit to
customers − and children at one of the local primary schools.
On Friday (November 30) the Bromford Homes team went to Primrose
Hill C of E Primary School laden with gift-wrapped art materials
for the winners in a competition to design and make the best
decorations for a Christmas tree gifted by Bromford.
They stayed while Head Geof Roser and Foundation Governor Aileen
Powell judged the pupils' sparkling efforts at the school's
Christmas bazaar and applauded the winners as they received their
six arty prizes while the editor of the local Review
newspaper took photographs.
Earlier in the week, Oakdale Sales Consultant Jenny Stratford
spread more Christmas cheer by awarding a festive hamper to Paula
Bessant, winner of a special prize draw for prospective shared
ownership buyers who visited a recent open day at this landmark
development in the Forest of Dean market town.
Jenny thoroughly enjoyed her week of gift giving, which included
delivering the tree to School Crescent, Lydney, so that Primrose
Hill staff could put it up in the reception area and hang it with
the children's sparkly efforts.
"We've got quite a few young families living here at Oakdale and
with Christmas so close we wanted to do something that would bring
a bit of festive cheer for children at one of the nearest schools,"
said Jenny, who was supported at the bazaar by Bromford Homes Head
of Sales (South) Trish Foster and Jane Price, of Michael Tuck New
"We're delighted that the headteacher decided to accept our
offer of a Christmas tree for the school and some art materials as
prizes for the best home-made decorations. It was lovely to be a
part of such a lovely festive event and to see how the children had
used their imaginations and artistic talents to create some really
"We wish all the children and their families, the staff and
governors a really Merry Christmas."
Headteacher Geof Roser thanked Bromford Homes for donating the
tree and prizes, saying: "I think there were some really super
entries. The children used a wide variety of different media and
materials as well as plenty of imagination. The Christmas bazaar
always kicks off our festive celebrations and we are pleased that
Bromford Homes supported us in this way."
There were six prizes for the children, with Chloe first, Abi
second and Katie third in the younger age group and Anoushka first,
Milly second and Lucas third in the older age group.
