Celebrating sustainability and student achievement!

Severndale Taylor Wimpy

We’re thrilled to share a heartwarming follow-up to Taylor Wimpey winning Reconomy’s Think Circular Award back in May! 

Recently, students from Severndale Specialist Academy’s Futures Programme (for 16 to 18-year-olds) visited Taylor Wimpey’s Lily Hay development in Shrewsbury. These talented students have transformed used pallets from the development, delivered by Reconomy, into beautiful bird boxes to enhance biodiversity at Lily Hay. 

A group of students proudly visited the site to deliver these bird boxes, showcasing their hard work and dedication.

Here’s what Taylor Wimpey Site Managers, Gareth Richards & Shaun Gordon, had to say: “The students from Severndale Academy’s Futures Programme have done us proud. We are absolutely delighted with the bird boxes and can see the pride and passion that has gone into making them. We will install the bird boxes around the development for our residents, and of course, the birds to enjoy.”

Terry Wootton from Reconomy added: “This project not only reduces waste and supports sustainability goals, but also boosts local biodiversity. It provides invaluable hands-on experience for the students and allows Reconomy to educate them on environmental benefits, fostering a new generation of sustainability champions.”

This initiative is part of Taylor Wimpey’s ongoing commitment to supporting biodiversity net gain and nature enhancements, including hedgehog highways, bat boxes, and bug hotels. 

Thank you to everyone involved for making this project a soaring success!
