Housebuilder brings fairytales to life for Navenby schoolchildren

Posted on 11th June 2021 in News & Views

In celebration of Share a Story month (May), housebuilder Rippon Homes invited storyteller Keith Butters to Navenby Church of England Primary School, local to its Eleanor Gardens development.

The year two class was enthralled by an exploration of Lincolnshire history and folk stories, fitting in with this year’s theme of Myths, Magic, and Mayhem.

Alongside the event, Rippon has donated £150 of book vouchers to the school in order to boost their internal library.

As well as the OFSTED rated Outstanding primary school, the collection of three and four-bedroom houses and bungalows at Eleanor Gardens is close to the main playing fields and community hall in this charming village, making it perfectly positioned for young families.

The village also boasts a thriving community and range of local amenities, including an award-winning butcher and bakery, while the city of Lincoln is less than 10 miles away for more extensive shopping, restaurants, or entertainment.







The development is also well situated for commuter links to Lincoln and the North, the A46 and A1 and to Newark and Grantham both of which link to London King’s Cross with high speed rail connections.

Craig Elliott, Headteacher at Navenby CofE Primary said, “We were delighted that our year two class had the opportunity to enjoy a live storytelling thanks to Rippon. They all enjoyed it immensely and we’re very appreciative of their involvement in the school and local community.”

Ian Dyke, Managing Director of Rippon Homes added, “Family life is very important to us when we create our developments, and we’re honoured to contribute to that aspect of the community where possible.

“We are delighted by the response to our houses in Navenby, and look forward to welcoming new homeowners. Given the amount of interest so far, we don’t anticipate these homes to be available for long and urge anyone interested to get in touch soon!”








Eleanor Gardens is found at The Headlands, Navenby, Lincolnshire, LN5 0TR and the sales team can be reached on 01522 412099.
