Over 120 staff at Bewley Homes celebrated the company’s 30th anniversary with a traditional garden party held at its headquarters in Hampshire.
The award-winning housebuilder, which launched its first site near Basingstoke in 1991, has completed a record year with sales of £154.5m comprising 424 completions. Bewley has created 20 new positions during 2021 in order to accommodate the company’s growth plans and has started building on a number of new sites in the home counties.
Andrew Brooks, Bewley Homes’ Managing Director, said: “It was fantastic to mark our 30th anniversary with the team and to celebrate the financial year-end.
“We have seen some excellent achievements this financial year. The Bewley team have performed no matter what challenge has come their way. With the company’s solid financial base, we look forward to continuing to build the Bewley brand over the next few years.”
Andrew added: “The business continued to grow throughout the year. We created 20 new positions and promoted 10 people from within the company, proving as the company goes from strength to strength that it also offers the opportunity for staff to further their own careers.”
With a focus on buying land with sites of approximately 40 to 500 units, Bewley Homes builds two-storey homes or low-rise apartments, located predominantly in towns, villages or rural locations throughout Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
Andrew added: “Being a privately owned, ambitious, well-financed regional housebuilder with short, streamlined sign off processes means we can move quickly on land opportunities, but we also have flexibility on how we structure a transaction which can suit a landowner. We are building a sustainable business and our reputation amongst our peers, agents and landowners is of paramount importance.”
Bewley Homes has further supported its local communities where it builds this year, continuing its main club sponsorship of Hungerford FC, launching its Bewley Backs Bikes campaign promoting safe cycling across the region and donated £2,500 to the NHS through an initiative with YouTube fitness guru Lucy Wyndham Read, which helped staff with their mental and physical well-being.
