A SOMERSET housebuilder has launched a quest to find its longest standing owner to help mark a business milestone – and those in the area are in with a good chance of winning.

As the housebuilder celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, Redrow, responsible for building over 150 developments in the South West since 1988, is 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.

The housebuilder is calling on those living in Bridgwater, Taunton, Chard, Weston-Super-Mare, Cheddar, Beckington and Winscombe to take part, with a number of current and long-standing Redrow developments in the area, including:

• Bagley Green in Wellington

• Chilton Waters in Bridgwater

• Draycott Park in Cheddar

• Knight Stone Island in Weston-Super-Mare

• Priory Chase in Worle

• Springmead in Chard

• The Orchards in Tatworth

• The Heathfields in Taunton

• Woodborough Grange in Winscombe

Sian Smith, sales director for Redrow South West, said: “This is an exciting year, as we look ahead to commemorate our 50th anniversary, and 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 South West homeowner who has lived with us the longest, we encourage you to get in touch.”

Founded in 1974, Redrow was created by Steve Morgan CBE with just £5,000, loaned to him by his father.

Over the years, Redrow has built more than 120,000 homes, housing the equivalent population of a major city like Nottingham, and now has twelve regional divisions across England and Wales including Redrow South West, which was started in 1988 and has to-date, crafted over 150 developments.

Most recently, Redrow became the first large housebuilder to introduce air source heat pumps into all of its new developments with underfloor heating as standard, reaffirming its commitment to creating future-fit homes, with greener, more efficient features.

The housebuilder has also funded several charitable projects in the South West through its regional Community Fund, with £10,000 over the past 12 months alone distributed to good causes across the region.
