Redrow Helps Ellesmere Port Team Kick Off in Style

An Under 11s football team in Ellesmere Port has scored support from housebuilder Redrow.

Redrow has donated £1,000 to Groves Athletic as part of the Ledsham community fund that the housebuilder set up last year. The football club, based at Groves Sports and Social club on Chester Road, is just one of the many local clubs and groups that will be benefitting from the scheme.

John Shaw, manager of the U11s team said: “The money Redrow has donated has meant we can provide a wealth of new things for the team including both home and away kits, tracksuits, other equipment and some training gear.

“We’re incredibly grateful to Redrow and their support as in the past it’s been the parents that have always chipped in to help with costs. It all helps to ensure that these children can get out, enjoy grass roots football and just have some fun.”

Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), added: “Redrow loves to get involved in the communities in which it builds and we have been particularly active in Ledsham, inviting local groups to apply for Redrow funding last year.


“We were only too happy to help out the U11s as they demonstrate such a high level of team spirit. We hope the sponsorship brings them success but also that it helps them all to continue enjoying themselves.”

The community fund is in addition to Redrow’s contribution, as part of the planning process, of over £13.3m to Little Sutton and the surrounding area which will go towards a new primary school, off-site school provision, new and improved bus routes, better playing fields / play facilities, and improvements to local shops and health facilities. There will also be a total of 500 affordable homes built.

In the first phase of Ledsham Garden Village there will be 170 properties, 43 of which will be affordable homes. Each home offers individual design touches, featuring generously proportioned bright, airy open plan living and contemporary interiors to create real character.

The flagship new development, set to cover 105 hectares to the north of Ledsham Road, will eventually become a sustainable new community of up to 2,000 homes.

Redrow is currently building in two neighbouring developments at Ledsham Garden Village; Oaklands and Sycamore Green. The five new show homes at Ledsham Garden Village are open seven days a week, between 10am and 5.30pm. For more information visit: or or call 0151 345 8414.
