Family fun at new homes venture in Sherburn in Elmet

A teddy bears’ picnic helped young residents of Saxon Court in Sherburn in Elmet get to know one another and kept visitors’ children entertained.

Face painting and balloon modelling were on the party agenda, while those who took along their own bears were rewarded with a bag of treats.

Patsy Aicken, sales director for Redrow Homes (Yorkshire), commented: “Saxon Court features family homes and the idea behind the teddy bears’ picnic was to engage with our customers’ children in a fun and exciting way. We welcomed children already living in our homes, who were able to meet their new neighbours, as well as youngsters whose families are looking to move to the area.

“It was great to see so many young faces and meet their teddy bears too!” 

There are now fewer than 10 homes still available at Saxon Court, with prices from £265,999. Each with four bedrooms, they give families the room they need to grow.

The teddy bears’ picnic was inspired by the award-winning housebuilder’s latest marketing campaign, which features a five-year-old child, Issy, highlighting the all-round family appeal of a new Redrow home.

A special promotional film of Issy giving a tour of a Redrow show home through a child’s eyes has been an internet hit and her own favourite teddy bears are prominent in that film.

“Our homes are designed to meet the demands of family living, as those who’ve watched the Issy film will appreciate. Kitchens come with all the mod cons with integrated appliances such as oven and fridge freezer – even the microwave is included as standard; while soft closing doors on the cabinets and drawers mean little fingers won’t get trapped,” Patsy added.

“And thanks to the handy en-suite to master bedroom the morning rush for the family bathroom should be alleviated.”

Located in Moor Lane in Sherburn in Elmet, Saxon Court is close to a number of schools making it the perfect place for buyers to put down roots and raise a family. The bustling market town of Selby is nearby and the thriving cities of Leeds and York are just a short journey away.
