Team BE gets knocked out at ‘It’s a Knockout’

This month, the Burrington Estates New Homes team took a trip across the border to take part in the annual ‘It’s a Knockout’ event in Cornwall. Nine members of the new homes team and friends were ready to compete against 11 other teams in the foam-tastic, inflatable, family fun day raising money for Cornwall Hospice Care.

The day saw local residents and holiday makers enjoy the entertainment, with a dog show, horse riding event, BBQ, live band and circus games as well as the mighty ‘It’s a Knockout’ final game.

12 teams in total took part in the 7 different obstacle stations which consisted of tunnel diving, climbing, ball throwing, hoop flying, group sack racing, space hopping, dancing and more.

It was a great event that was held at the St Erme Cricket Club in Trispen organised by The Trispen Funday committee, just a stone’s throw away from Burrington Estates new homes development; Trispen Meadows. Over £600 was raised for Cornwall Hospice Care with donations still being collected. We would like to thank the committee for inviting us and congratulate the well-deserved, winning team – Cornwall Glass.

Well done everyone.

50 children from St Erme with Trispen Community Primary School were invited to explore the Trispen Meadows development and enjoy an afternoon of activities. Head of Construction, Mike Crawford, and Site Manager, Shaun Marsden, gave a tour of the site and the show home, and explained the essentials of house building in an interview led by the children. The students were also tasked with sketching the four bedroom show home, a Coombe house type which is available from £385,000, it has a mix of stonework and render, pointed archways and a landscaped front garden.

Mike Crawford, Head of Construction at Burrington Estates New Homes, said: ‘We were delighted to welcome the school children to Trispen Meadows as it’s such a fantastic opportunity for them to learn more about construction and the building industry. It was great to see them take their first steps at the brick laying demonstration – I think we had a few future bricklayers on our hands! Making links with the local community is a cornerstone of what we at Burrington Estates do, so it was a real pleasure having them on site.’

Julie Orrell, Headteacher at Trispen Community Primary School, said: ‘As part of our curriculum, we explore the history, use and development of land in the village. The children were very impressed during the tour of the completed show home by the size of the house, garden and number of hi-tech appliances, such as a coffee machine that can be operated remotely before the owner arrives home! We would like to thank Nicola, Mike and Shaun from Burrington Estates NEw Homes for providing such an enjoyable learning opportunity for our children in their local community.”
