A team of developers building homes in St Albans laid on a tea party for the community.

The Willmott Dixon team, who are building homes on Blundell Close, Partridge Road and Ladies Close, organised the afternoon tea on Friday, July 7 to give residents a chance to visit the site, meet the team and ask them questions.

Leanne Hawkes, senior project surveyor, said: “We have three sites in a small area and we thought it was very important to show the community we understand that the project may have a short-term impact on their daily lives.”

The project, which is for St Albans district council, is expected to be completed in March 2018.

Resident Brian Husband said: “It was a fantastic event, everyone enjoyed meeting the builders and having time to get to know them. It’s rare for contractors to take time out of their day to appreciate the people affected by their works.”
