Pelham and Minster made the school field trip both educational and enjoyable by providing goodie boxes for each pupil to take home.

Pelham and Minster support local community

Published:  01 July, 2013

Pelham Structures and Minster Insulation & Dry Lining have come together in support of the Manuden community by showing a local primary school around their site to educate them on buildings and settlements.

Pupils from Manuden Primary School have been studying settlements in Geography, and housebuilder Pelham Structures – supported by Minster – welcomed the class of 30 to visit a local site within the Essex village on Tuesday 25 June. The site will be a new Community and Sports Centre worth approximately Ł1.6m and four affordable houses, at no cost to the village, along with 10 open-market houses ranging from two to five bedrooms.

“It was a fun afternoon had by all and we are grateful to Minster for its support,” said Pelham Structures’ Kate Singleton.

Since work on the site began in February 2013, Minster has supplied insulation and dry lining materials to Pelham including Rockwool Flexi Slab and Ecotherm Eco-Versal. According to the company, the development will be of significant public benefit, sensitive to its surroundings and built to a high standard.

Due for completion in June 2014, the site’s new Community and Sports Centre will include a badminton court, three football pitches, a multi-use astro-turf games area and a cricket ground.
