Miller Homes pledges £274,500 to develop local community

Miller Homes Midlands is investing over a quarter of a million pounds into the local community as part of its upcoming development in the market town of Melbourne, South Derbyshire.

Ahead of the launch of Victoria Gardens in July, the leading housebuilder’s contribution will be used to support a range of projects including improvements to a number of local schools. Situated on Jawbone Lane, the new development will offer a choice of three, four and five bedroom homes.

As part of its funding, contributions will go towards Chellaston Academy’s Secondary School and post-16, with over £100,000 being invested into the Academy’s growth. A further £80,000 will go towards facilities at Melbourne Infant School and Melbourne Junior School.

Additionally, Miller Homes is supporting the much-loved Kings Newton Bowls Club with a grant of £14,244, with £25,612 going towards Melbourne Sports Park. Also, Melbourne and Chellaston Medical Practice will see a £13,000 injection of funds.

Miller Homes Midlands will also support Whistlewood Common, a multi-purpose event space for workshops and educational sessions for the community. A grant of £18,765 has also been made to increase the number of activities held here.

Alastair Parsons, Area Sales Director for Miller Homes Midlands explained the vital role investment plays to local communities: “We’re incredibly proud to be investing in such a beautiful area, supporting its current growth and therefore ensuring Melbourne continues to be an enjoyable place to live for families in the future. We believe these developments will help to bring the townspeople together, giving its residents a great sense of pride in their community.”
