Christmas wish comes true as we hand over 500th brand new home this year

We are celebrating a major milestone in our development programme - the 500th new property to be handed over in this financial year.

Our delighted customer Jamie Branston can now look forward to a proper Christmas with her partner and seven children after 19 months of being apart and living with different members of their families.

We have 48 homes – all at affordable rent – on the 160-home Bloor Homes development near Leicester.

“This means so much to us,” said Jamie. “The family has been fragmented since we lost our baby son and couldn’t bear to return to the house where he died. Now we can all be together and start afresh in a lovely brand new home.

“One of my twins recently wrote a letter to Santa in which he said all he wanted for Christmas was a new home. It broke my heart to read it but now we can make that wish come true. We’ve kept the new house a secret so it will be a huge surprise for the children. We can’t wait to see their faces.”

Chris Miller, Director of Development, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for us as a provider of affordable housing and we are bang on target to reach our ambitious goal of 555 new homes completed by the end of March 2020.

“We’re delighted Jamie and her family received the keys to our 500th new property and wish them every happiness as they settle into their new home.”
