Parkway Construction donates to Buccleuch Fundraiser
We are happy to have donated to the 2019 Buccleuch Property Challenge, currently raising money for the Seamab charity!
Seamab provides care and education for children in Scotland who need intensive and specialist support, almost all of whom have experienced significant trauma. Seamab offers residence and education for boys and girls aged between five and thirteen who can stay with Seamab for their care up to age eighteen. They have a highly skilled, dedicated and energetic team, able to work with the most vulnerable and challenging children and each child at Seamab has an individualised programme for care and education.
Fun and adventure is an important part of all children’s lives and the children at Seamab are no different. Our donation for example could be used to help give a child the opportunity to learn to swim - a lifesaving ability. If you would like to also help Buccleuch reach their fundraising target of £10,000 then please donate here.
These donations contribute to changing the perception our children have of themselves from feeling worthless to feeling confident, resilient young people ready to learn and thrive with a future to look forward too.

Parkway Construction donates to The Ark Centre!
Well done to Andy Burt from Mitsubishi Electric and all of the other incredible cyclists who took part in the challenge of cycling 550km from My Tho, Vietnam to Siem Reap, Cambodia!
We are happy to have donated £200 to help sponsor Andy and this great cause which raised money for the Ark Centre - a not-for-profit charity that does amazing work providing individualised, early intervention therapy for children between 2-5 years old with autism and/or social communication difficulties.
The money raised from this cycle challenge will be used to help the Ark Centre move to larger premises where they will be able to facilitate more children attending the Centre and reducing the waiting list. The funds will also be used to help host outreach training sessions for families of those children who are on the waiting list.
The challenge may be finished but that doesn't mean that donations need to be! Any donations made to the Ark Centre will continue to help improve and expand their facilities and make a difference - Click here to donate
Christmas Jumper Day 2018!
On Friday 23 November, Parkway welcomed a new year 3 group of children from Longfield’s Primary School. They were interested to see what machinery was used to build our warehouses’ so they came and had a tour around our Link 9 site in Bicester, looking at dumper trucks, crane, scissor lifts and even got to climb in the cherry picker cage.
We have been given a fantastic thank you book from the children and we look forward to seeing them again in the new year close to completion.
We recently had some aerial shots taken of Newmarket Business Park which show a big difference from a shot taken 13 years ago! In 2005 we had already completed 3 projects in the area, and now 6 projects later you can see a lot of progress including our most recently completed projects with Wickes, Harley Davidson and plots 9 & 10.
Longlands Primary School returned to site to see how the development was coming along. Parkway arranged for a time capsule to be made for the school to fill with things that are special to them which was then buried within the site. The local press were eager to cover this and you can see the article below.
On Monday 29 January 2018, Parkway Construction welcomed a class from a local school to visit their new development, Link 9, in Bicester. The year 3 group of students at Longfrields Primary School are currently studying rocks and construction so they were eager to come along and have a look at what Parkway do.
Year 3’s from Mr Kellam’s Class
Longfields Primary School
'The year 3 children at Longfields Primary School want to say a huge thank you to Parkway Construction for not only allowing us to visit your Link 9 project but also for welcoming us in such a wonderful way. You made our topics of rocks and construction completely come to life and helped us understand in much greater detail all that we had been learning. The fact you taught us the importance of site safety by arranging for us to wear special clothing made us feel like real site workers. Seeing the bulldozers, diggers and cranes at work was amazing and letting us scramble around the rock ‘mountain’ was a treat. Most of all thank you for answering so many of our tricky questions which has really helped our understanding. All of you created an unforgettable experience and have inspired dozer drivers, project managers and building designers of the future!
We are now all excited to see the completed warehouse project and are hoping our models will be just as good.'
