Redrow Eastern launches search for longest ever resident ahead of 50th anniversary

1st March 2024
50th Anniversary social

Redrow has today launched a quest to find the longest standing owner of a Redrow home to help mark a monumental business milestone.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary this year, we are on the hunt for original and long-term residents to share their experiences and unique stories.

For those who enter, the longest standing Redrow customer(s) will win a prize of £500 as a thank you for telling their story.

Founded in 1974, Redrow was created by Steve Morgan CBE with just £5,000, loaned to him by his father. With hard work and dedication, five years later we expanded from civil engineering into main contract building, seeing us embark on our first housing development in Denbigh, North Wales.

After that, we quickly expanded into the homes sector, cementing our reputation as a high-quality homebuilder. Steve’s entrepreneurial spirit runs through the company to this day, making us one of the most successful and forward-looking housebuilders in the country. Most recently, we became the first large housebuilder to introduce air source heat pumps into all of our new developments with underfloor heating as standard, reaffirming our commitment to creating future-fit homes, with greener, more efficient features, a top priority for homebuyers according to recent research.

Over the years, we have built more than 120,000 homes, housing the equivalent population of a major city like Nottingham, and now we have twelve regional divisions across England and Wales including Eastern which was started in 2015 and has to-date, crafted over 2,500 homes.

Although our first scheme in Denbigh may have consisted of just 36 bungalows, we have evolved our home designs over the years and continuously innovated building everything from apartments to penthouses, family houses and first buyer homes.

For us, it is the people and communities that are at the heart of the business. In fact, we have funded several projects in the East of England led by local charities such as Haverhill Scout Group, who received a donation toward a new hut, and Essex and Herts Air Ambulance who received donation support as Redrow Eastern’s ‘Charity of the Year’.

With over 2,000 colleagues with a combined service of over 11,000 years supporting customers up and down the country, we will be visiting developments across the country to connect and celebrate our 50th anniversary with the people who have made our houses homes across the years.

Kerry McCoubrey, sales director for our Eastern division, commented: “As we enter this exciting year, commemorating our 50th anniversary, we can’t wait to celebrate with all the people who make Redrow what it is. If you’ve been a Redrow homeowner since your very first home purchase or recently upsized into a new energy efficient home with us, we hope you will join us in the celebrations. As part of our 50th anniversary, we want to hear from you, whether that’s an interesting homebuying tale or a story of your life in one of our homes. And if you think you may be the Redrow homeowner who has lived with us the longest, we encourage you to get in touch!”

Please note, all successful participants must be willing to be photographed and have their story featured across Redrow channels alongside potential media placement. £500 will be awarded to one homeowner who has lived in Redrow properties the longest. For T&Cs please visit our website.
