Heathcotes Wigston Magna commended for building harmony
The local community is very important to Heathcotes services up and down the country. Giving our service users a greater sense of community integration is a vital part of what we do, so it makes sense for us to ensure that our properties and our grounds are built and maintained to harmonise with their surroundings. Heathcotes believe the appearance of our facilities should represent something that the neighbourhood can be proud of, so it was very gratifying to hear that Heathcotes’ Wigston Magna building in Leicestershire has been awarded a Certificate of Commendation by Wigston Civic Society.
Located at the rear of the old Vicarage in Bushloe End, the property has received the award in recognition of the contribution it has made to the character and visual appeal of the Wigston area. Services Manager Charlene Mcleavy and two colleagues, Gemma Hutchings and Elaine Cook, were invited to attend the Wigston Civic Society Annual meeting to receive the certificate.
Charlene said: “We are very proud to receive this award from Wigston Civic Society. It reflects the care we take in making sure that the building and gardens are kept in excellent condition. This is the second Certificate of Commendation awarded to Heathcotes Wigston Magna – we also received one when the services first opened a few years ago. It is pleasing to be recognised for maintaining those high standards and we are delighted that our buildings are appreciated by the local community.”
Like many properties within the Group’s estate, Heathcotes’ Wigston Magna property was designed by our in-house architectural consultancy, JDS Design, and built by contractors John Ryan Developments Ltd.
