A little helper ….

Whilst we are all still working from home Lynda, our Accounts Assistant, has employed a little helper.

We’re Back……..

Following the advice from the Government we have started to reopen our sites.  The challenges we have all faced in the past few weeks have been complex, with the housing market taking its fair share.

The decision to return has been carefully considered with the safety and well-being of our staff, construction team and the public being at the forefront of our minds.

We will of course ensure that we all follow the government guidelines and look forward to inviting you to view our new homes, that are currently under construction, in the not too distant future.

For those that are ready to move now, our show home units are available to view by private appointment at our Wyatts Close development in Godalming.

Please contact our team on 01252 733885 or theteam@forays.co.uk for more information or to enquire about future developments.

Lockdown easing…..

After seven weeks it looks like Boris is looking to ease the lockdown and I am sure we are all eager to find out what our new normal will be.

These last seven weeks have been anything but quiet, all the Forays team have been working from home albeit in studies, dining rooms, lounges or bedrooms.

We are pleased and encouraged how many buyers have been keen to keep their plans in place and are delighted that we have been able to secure exchanges and completions in these difficult times, whilst of course adhering to the government guidelines.

This situation has changed our lives and the lives of everyone we work with and most people around the World, but we look forward to returning to the office and returning to some form of normality.

What has been very evident, and we would love to see continue when we are past this, and we WILL be past this at some point, is the massive sense of community spirit ! Long may this continue !

We would like to say a big thank you to the NHS and all the key and front line workers who have continued to serve our country through these unprecedented times, and wish everyone well to get through this.

Stay Well and Safe

The Forays Team

 

 

No place like home……

In homes all over the country those in lockdown are thinking about life after release and of post-virus life.

During these tough times I think we can all agree that this has taught us the value of our homes, be it a house or apartment. It’s true to say that for those without outside space the isolation has been much harder, but our homes have kept us safe.

During this unpresented time lockdown has given many of us the time to re-evaluate how and where we live. The way we communicate with colleagues, friends and family has changed, along with the way we shop, work and exercise.

Some of us will want a more substantial home where some of us will be looking to downsize.  Maybe some of us will look at a change in location, be it to the countryside or a bustling town or city, but our needs of what we need in a home…feeling safe and secure, won’t change.

Forays Homes are still open for business and will be back in our offices in Frimley when this emergency is over to continue building and help you with the purchase of your new home.

Chobham Scrub Makers…………

One of our directors is feeling left out by his wife during lockdown as she has joined the Chobham hub of volunteers helping to make much needed non-surgical scrubs for our amazing NHS during the Covid-19 crisis.

Co-ordinated by retired teacher Alison Hughes the Chobham Scrub Makers are busy sewing tote bags, scrub hats and scrub sets for the Frimley Trust, which includes, Frimley Park, St Peters and Wrexham Park Hospitals.

If you would like to get involved please contact Alison on 01276 855653 or 07545686014 alisonhughes50@aol.com or if you would like to donate to buy fabric then please contact Tia Knight fabrics directly on 0116 2510 566 www.tiaknightfabrics.co.uk

 

Wyatts Close, Godalming

We are delighted that exchanges and completions are still going ahead at our historic development of Wyatts Almshouses in Godalming.
