Neighbours come together for first Buckler’s Park BBQ

August 27, 2019

Nothing quite says ‘British summer’ like putting on your waterproof and heading to a barbecue.  We’re very grateful to those that did just that on 16 August and came along to our summer gathering at Buckler’s Park.

An incredible 100 people turned out on the day to enjoy the barbecue favourites and refreshments. It was great to see some neighbours arriving together as others met for the first time and our Visitors Centre was the perfect place to take shelter when the temperature dropped. And it wasn’t just the adults making friends – our younger residents made good use of the games and toys in kids’ corner and we’re sure they will be clamouring for play dates soon.

John Allan, Managing Director at Legal & General Homes, said: “Since we welcomed our first residents to Buckler’s Park in 2018, we have loved watching the community grow.  Events like this one, as well as our Meet the Builder breakfasts before residents even move in, are our way of introducing people that will be living side by side for years to come. As a result, Buckler’s Park is already becoming a place where people stop and say ‘good morning’ to each other and pop next door to borrow milk.”

Our Buckler’s Park Visitors Centre is open daily from 10am to 5:30pm, and until 7pm on Mondays.
