Boston United’s brand-new Community Stadium at The Quadrant is on its way!

03 August 2019

Work is due to restart on drainage and substructure works around the end of July — and the club’s steelwork contractors Britcon (UK) of Scunthorpe have now provided the first glimpses of the steelwork under fabrication. Steel erection is due to commence in early September and construction work is programmed with a view to playing football at the new Community Stadium in August 2020.

 

The Pilgrims are preparing to say farewell to York Street, with Chester FC arriving on Saturday, August 3 to kick-off the club’s final campaign at their famous old ground.

Britcon (UK) Limited have been working alongside Chestnut Homes’ design team and recently commenced fabrication of the steelwork for the main West Stand, which is due to be erected in the autumn of 2019.

United chairman David Newton told bufc.co.uk: “We have been working hard to ensure that construction on the new Community Stadium re-commenced as soon as possible and I am now delighted to confirm that work will start at the end of the month.

 

“As I outlined at the fans’ forum, work will be phased to give us the best chance of starting the 2020-2021 season in the new stadium. To that end, we will focus on completing the West Stand and North Stand, along with the pitch and associated parking and infrastructure, as early as possible.  “We will, of course, keep fans abreast of progress on site. This is a very exciting time for the club as this new community facility finally takes shape. It is a key step to ensuring that the club has a long-term secure future.”

 

Scunthorpe-based Britcon (UK) Limited are delighted to renew ties with its neighbouring Lincolnshire town of Boston. In 2014 Britcon (UK) Limited installed St Botolph’s Footbridge in the centre of the Boston and are now pleased to announce they have been contracted by Chestnut Homes to design and install the structural steel frame for the new prestigious Boston United Community Stadium.

Britcon director Nick Evans added: “Britcon (UK) Limited have been working alongside Chestnut Homes’ design team and recently commenced fabrication of the steelwork for the main West Stand, which is due to be erected in the autumn of 2019.

 

“Britcon (UK) Limited will be fabricating and erecting over 350 tonnes of steelwork for this project and are grateful to Chestnut Homes for supporting the Lincolnshire economy by procuring the new Boston United Community Stadium from local contractors.”

Schoolchildren lay the foundations for future careers

03 July 2019

A group of primary school pupils visited our housing development at The Quadrant, Boston to find out more about a career in sales and marketing.

The Year 5s, from Wyberton Primary School, were invited to Chestnut Homes’ The Quadrant development, off Tytton Lane East, Wyberton, as part of the school’s annual careers week. The week links to the school’s business and enterprise curriculum and explores topics such as making a presentation, money, leadership and responsibility, taking risks, decision making, problem solving and teamwork, with the aim of raising the children’s aspirations. The children were asked to write an application for the job of their choice, with successful applicants being given the chance to explore different careers.The six children visited the showhomes in the show village at The Quadrant and met sales advisor Kamila Brigden as well as marketing manager Stephanie Tilley.

Gemma Hodgson, Assistant Headteacher at Wyberton Primary School, said: “We’d like to thank Chestnut Homes for supporting this initiative. We find the week to be very beneficial to the children – encouraging them to set goals and have dreams for the future. “The children really enjoyed their visit to The Quadrant and found it very interesting looking around the showhomes and speaking to members of staff on site.”

 

David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “We were only too pleased to help support careers week at Wyberton Primary School. “We’ve already built a good relationship with the school, having donated high-visibility vests to them as part of Walk to School week earlier this year, and it was lovely to welcome the pupils to the development and give them an insight into the world of work.”

Wyberton home was the perfect choice for first-time buyers

03 June 2019

A couple from Boston are over the moon after buying their first home together from a Lincolnshire-based housebuilder. Mitchell, 24, and Lulu Grainger, 23, found their perfect first house at Chestnut Homes’ The Quadrant development in the nearby village of Wyberton. Lulu, a self-employed singing teacher at a school in Skegness, whose husband Mitchell is a long-distance lorry driver, said: “We had been renting a three-bedroom townhouse in Boston but really wanted to buy our very own home. We looked at a few new developments in the area, but The Quadrant just felt right.”

Lulu and Mitchell purchased a three-bedroom semi-detached property using the Government backed Help to Buy scheme and made their move in October 2018. Lulu said: “We are really enjoying living here. It’s lovely and quiet but also really handy as it’s only a couple of minutes’ drive to everything that we need including our families – we can’t fault it. “We love the space our home gives us. We really wanted a house that we could grow into and live in for a long time, so it feels amazing to have achieved this. “One of the things we particularly liked about the development was the selection of showhomes and how helpful and friendly the sales staff were. Kamilla and Nikki knew us on a first name basis and made us feel really comfortable throughout the buying process.”

Backed by the Government, the Help to Buy scheme allows purchasers to secure a new home with a five per cent deposit and a 20 per cent equity loan from the Government, allowing the buyer to access a 75 per cent mortgage.

Chestnut Homes is currently building a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at The Quadrant, with three-bedroom homes starting from £229,950.

Chestnut Homes supports Walk to School Week in Wyberton

03 May 2019

We are supporting Wyberton Primary School’s involvement in National Walk to School Week.

Schoolchildren in Wyberton will be donning high-visibility vests on the walk to school, thanks to our donation as we are supporting Wyberton Primary School’s involvement in National Walk to School Week.

The annual campaign, which runs all this week, (Monday 20th to Friday 24th May), was established by the charity Living Streets to inspire children to lead more healthy lifestyles and to help reduce congestion and pollution. This year is Living Streets’ 90th anniversary and to celebrate they have challenged schools to embrace walking by showing how it can benefit the whole community as well as improve individual wellbeing.

To encourage walking to school, we have donated 60 branded high-visibility vests, which will be given to pupils to wear on the walk to and from school.

Gemma Hodgson, Assistant Headteacher at Wyberton Primary School, said: “We were so pleased when Chestnut Homes got in touch to ask if they could make this donation to our pupils as part of National Walk to School Week. “The high-visibility vests look great and the children are really looking forward to wearing them on the walk to school. “Walking has so many benefits and we are extremely grateful to Chestnut Homes for their support in helping us to spread this message to our pupils.”

David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “We are firm believers in giving back to the local communities in which we build, so we are very pleased to make this donation of high-visibility vests to Wyberton Primary School and Sir Francis Hill Community Primary School “National Walk to School Week is a great campaign and we hope our support will help the school to encourage more of its pupils to recognise the benefits of walking.”

Chestnut Homes is currently building a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at The Quadrant, off Tytton Lane East, Wyberton and a range of two and three-bedroom townhouses and two-bedroom apartments at the LN6 development, off Westbrooke Road in Lincoln.
