Maddie Goodwin, 10, is supporting various charities in her year as the Eaton and Hulme Walfield Rose Queen, together with her Rose King, Oliver Whittle, nine.
The Marton & District Primary School pupils have organised raffles and a carol service night, all in aid of Maddie’s chosen charities; Eaton Village Hall, The Christie Hospital, her school’s Uganda fund, Ruby’s Fund and the LOL Foundation.
The pair have just completed their biggest challenge yet, scaling Wales’ highest summit Snowdon, for which they have managed to raise a total of £1,000, including a £500 donation from Jones Homes, which is building at the Westlow Heath development off Manchester Road in Congleton.
Maddie said: “I am really proud to be the Rose Queen for Eaton and Hulme Walfield and to be raising money for charity along with my Rose King Oliver.
“I have really enjoyed my time in the role so far. I have done so many incredible things and completed a lot of exciting challenges, such as climbing Snowdon.
“I am so grateful to everyone who has supported me, and especially to Jones Homes for their generous donation. It has made a massive difference to my fundraising total.”
Hilary Dean, Area Sales Manager for Jones Homes North West, said: “We are full of admiration for Maddie and what she has achieved so far in her role as Rose Queen. She is an exceptional young woman and a fantastic role model for her peers.
“As a housebuilder we are always keen to support the local communities where we build, so we are extremely proud to make this donation to Maddie’s fundraising appeal and the very worthy causes she is supporting.”
Maddie has so far raised a total of £3,600 for her chosen charities. The final sum will be donated when her reign as Rose Queen comes to an end in July.
Jones Homes is offering first-time buyers a chance to save one third on the cost of a new home in Preston.
Fourteen homes at Jones Homes’ Ribbleswood Chase development in Hoyles Lane, Cottam, have been made available to buy at 67 per cent of the full market value. They range from two-bedroom apartments to two and three-bedroom houses.
The scheme is linked to Jones Homes’ planning consent for Ribbleswood Chase and is designed to enable more people in the area to buy a property of their own.
Carol Barlow, Sales Director for Jones Homes Lancashire, said: “The discounted homes at Ribbleswood Chase will play a significant role in helping more local people to realise the dream of homeownership.
“Discounted open value homes are an increasingly popular way for local authorities and developers to work together to provide homes that meet local need and are attainable for local buyers.
“The discounted homes have the same high specification that Jones Homes is known for, with features such as Aqualisa showers, Bosch kitchen appliances and LED downlighters. The only difference is cost.
“Not surprisingly, these homes are generating a lot of interest. Anyone who feels they may be eligible should visit the site and we can help them to work through the eligibility criteria.”
Discounted three-bedroom houses have already been released for sale at £134,995. Purchasers will need to meet criteria set by Preston City Council, demonstrating that they have strong links to the area and could not afford to buy a home on the open market.
The remaining houses and apartments will be released for sale as the build programme progresses.
The discounted homes will be re-sold with a 33 per cent discount in perpetuity. This means when the purchasers come to sell, they will also have to market their home at 67 per cent of the current market value. This mechanism ensures the homes remain affordable to local people and benefit generations to come.
Jones Homes is building 48 homes at Ribbleswood Chase. The development offers homes on the open market with two to five bedrooms, including detached and semi-detached houses, bungalows and dormer bungalows.
For more information visit the development from 11am to 5.30pm daily, call 01772 364301
Jones Homes is preparing to welcome the first residents to a development which will generate more than £2.6m of investment in Poulton-Le-Fylde.
Moorfield Park, located off Garstang Road, is creating 242 homes, ranging from two to five bedrooms.
Two showhomes have recently opened and the first residents have moved in.
Jones Homes will contribute £1.43m towards local primary education, £993,000 to create new secondary school places and £219,880 for sustainable transport and travel planning.
Carol Barlow, Sales Director for Jones Homes Lancashire, said: “Moorfield Park will deliver a range of family homes to help meet the needs of the growing community in Poulton-Le-Fylde, in addition to some starter homes.
“Our contributions to local infrastructure will help to support families who are moving into the area, as well as people who already live in the town.”
She added: “The payments are linked to our planning consent, demonstrating how local authorities and developers can work together to ensure new homes are bringing wider benefits to communities.
“The Government’s Help to Buy scheme is available at Moorfield Park. It has helped thousands of people to buy a new home since it was introduced in 2013. At Moorfield Park, the scheme will help first-time buyers and growing families to purchase a new home.”
With Help to Buy you can secure a new home with a five per cent deposit and a 75 per cent mortgage. The remaining 20 per cent is provided as a Government-backed equity loan which is interest-free for five years.
The showhomes at Moorfield Park demonstrate two of the most popular house types built by Jones Homes – the four-bedroom detached Bayswater and the three-bedroom semi-detached Birch.
Carol Barlow said: “The feedback from visitors since we opened our showhomes has been extremely positive.
“The town has a need for high-quality new homes and our visitors have been happy to see us delivering exactly that.
“Our designs and specification have been developed to exceed buyers’ expectations. We are confident that we can continue to do to so.”
Prices at Moorfield Park start at £199,995 for a 3 bedroom semi-detached home.
Work is entering its final phase on a new homes development which has generated £300,000 of investment in Alsager.
Around 70 homes are now occupied at Jones Homes’ Barrington Park development off Dunnocksfold Road. Once complete, there will be 117 homes at the development.
As part of its planning agreement, Jones Homes has contributed more than £238,000 towards primary and secondary education; more than £48,000 towards enhancements and play equipment at Hassall Road play area; £12,300 to improve natural habitats in the area; and £1,156 was put towards footpath improvements. A play area has also been created within Barrington Park, where three, four and five-bedroom homes are currently under construction.
Gemma Pownall, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes North West, said: “Barrington Park has been a popular development since we opened. As more and more homes have become occupied, we have watched a new community form. Many of our purchasers have moved from within Alsager and some already knew each other.
“The development has made a positive contribution to meeting the needs of local home-hunters. At Jones Homes, we pride ourselves on the quality of every home we build. This approach has generated high demand for homes of varying size at Barrington Park.
“Jones Homes has strong ties to Cheshire, with our head office and regional office based in Alderley Edge. We are proud to have directly contributed to improvements to the wider community through our planning agreement. This demonstrates the benefits new homes can bring for local infrastructure.”
The four-bedroom show home at Barrington Park is open from 10am to 5pm Monday to Friday and from 11am to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information call 01270 877126.

“Westlow Heath is delivering a wide variety of homes, with three to five bedrooms, which are helping people to move onto, up or along the housing ladder. It has been popular with first-time buyers, growing families and those looking to move from an older property and benefit from all a new home has to offer.
“We have worked hard to ensure we are delivering a range of homes to meet the needs of people living in Congleton. Jones Homes has built its reputation on delivering exemplary quality and high specification and these hallmarks are prevalent at Westlow Heath.
“Our planning contributions will ensure the infrastructure is in place to support the community as it grows and will deliver benefits to people throughout Congleton.”
Four and five-bedroom homes are currently available at Westlow Heath, with prices ranging from £269,950 to £459,950. To find out more, visit the show homes from 10am to 5pm Monday to Friday or from 11am to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays or call 01260 274781.
Local families had a fun-filled afternoon taking part in an Easter Egg trail held at a new homes development in Hade Edge, near Holmfirth.
Housebuilder Jones Homes arranged the event at its Heather View development off Dunford Road on Saturday, April 20, and was delighted to welcome excited visitors throughout the afternoon. The housebuilder had arranged for an egg hunt for children, while adults were able to explore the site and meet the team.
Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes, Jayne Swift, said: “We always love putting on events for local people at our developments and there was plenty of fun to be had at Heather View this Easter. We wanted to share what we’ve created so far with the people who live in the area and give them an opportunity to visit us to get to know more about the homes on offer, while the children had fun in the process. We were overjoyed that families and friends came out to take part in the egg hunt. It was a true pleasure to see everyone interacting.”
Work is now almost complete at The Orchards in Netherthong, which is supporting the sustainable growth of a Holme Valley village.
Jones Homes is nearing completion of the 24 private sale four and five-bedroom homes at The Orchards on St Mary’s Avenue, Netherthong. The new development creates an artificial stone-fronted street scene designed to complement the existing village architecture.
The Orchards has provided six affordable homes to allow people to set down roots in the village, all of which are now occupied. Jones Homes has also contributed £79,350 to Kirklees Council for investment in recreational facilities at the play area in Netherthong.
Jayne Swift, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes Yorkshire, said: “The Orchards has become quickly established as part of the Netherthong community. With over 50 per cent of the homes now occupied, our new residents have enjoyed settling into life in the village. Some have moved from within the Holme Valley but others have come from as far afield as Manchester to take advantage of a rural lifestyle with excellent links to Holmfirth and the wider area.
“As building work is expected to be completed in April, we are proud to have created a collection of attractive homes which meet the need for family housing in the village. The Orchards has provided affordable homes and enhanced recreational facilities in Netherthong, as well as supporting jobs in the local economy. In addition to direct investment from developers, new homes enhance local economies by encouraging more people to support local businesses. The Home Builders Federation (HBF) estimates that each individual new home built creates or sustains three jobs."
Jones Homes has revealed how its new Simpson Park development on the former Harworth Colliery site will look.
The computer-generated image shows how the street scene will appear when some of the first homes are built and occupied.
Jones Homes is building 71 homes on land off Scrooby Road. It is the company’s second development in Harworth, having completed work at Woodland Grange in Scrooby Road in April 2018.
Simpson Park opened to visitors in February and Jones Homes has begun taking reservations. Two show homes will open at the development during the summer, when the first residents are also due to move in.
Jayne Swift, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes, said: “Jones Homes is now an established name in Harworth. Our previous development, Woodland Grange, was extremely popular, so our early purchasers were confident that we would deliver the same high standards at Simpson Park. It is always exciting to see how the homes will look and then to watch the street scene taking shape. We have been proudly showing computer generated images to our visitors and they have been enthusiastic about the designs and how the house types fit together.
“Inside, our homes offer the high specification on which we have built our reputation. We offer many features as standard which developers usually consider as chargeable extras – for example, fully-tiled bathrooms including walls and floors, kitchen appliances, an alarm, a doorbell, and turf to the rear of the garden, plus much more. Since we opened Simpson Park, it has been encouraging to welcome new visitors and some familiar faces. This is a friendly community and we are pleased to have received such a warm reception.”
Simpson Park is named in memory of Harworth cyclist Tom Simpson. The development will include three and four-bedroom homes in a range of styles and sizes.
Jones Homes will build 127 homes in Bolsover after acquiring a 16-acre site for development.
Cavendish Park will sit next to Jones Homes’ existing Cavendish Grange development off Oxcroft Lane, where 35 homes are currently being built.
Jones Homes has secured planning consent for the new development and preparation works have now commenced on the site.
As part of its planning agreement for Cavendish Park, Jones Homes will contribute in the region of £800,000 to support the local community and infrastructure as it grows.
Jayne Swift, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes, said: “As relative newcomers to Bolsover, we have identified that there is strong demand for high-quality new homes in the area. Cavendish Grange has been exceptionally well received. The homes at Cavendish Park will be built to the same high standards, with luxurious details in every home. This, combined with the quality of our build and the convenient location on the edge of the town, means we are confident this next development will be equally popular. Jones Homes is firmly committed to investing in Bolsover. We are pleased to have secured more land and to be funding the delivery of the infrastructure required to support these new homes.”
Jones Homes’ planning consent requires the company to pay in the region of £460,000 towards education; £134,000 for open spaces; £169,000 for traffic monitoring and improvements; £56,000 for improvements to Mill Lane; and £12,500 for monitoring of its residents’ travel plan. There will be public open space within Cavendish Park and a footpath and cycle link to Shuttlewood Road will be created.
Jones Homes has acquired a 1.1ha in Harthill, paving the way for the construction of 24 much-needed new homes.
Hillside Green will be a range of four and five-bedroom houses on land at Carr Holme off Winney Hill, and includes six affordable homes for local people and key workers.
Planning permission for the development, which involves the demolition of an existing bungalow on the site, was granted by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council in November last year.
As part of the planning agreement for the development, Jones Homes will be contributing around £89,000 towards the improvement of infrastructure and facilities in the Harthill area.
The figure includes a sustainable transport contribution of £12,000 and a Community Infrastructure Levey (CIL) of £77,000.
David Ruffley, Regional Director of Jones Homes Yorkshire, said: “Our vision for Harthill is to build a development that fits in with the local area and meets the needs of local buyers. We aim to add to the area with a development that is attractive, both in terms of its character and its appearance. We have taken advice from the local authority throughout the planning process on how best to achieve this. The hallmark Jones Homes quality and specification will contribute to the creation of new homes that people will aspire to live in.”
Work is now underway at the development and a sales centre is due to open on site during the summer.
A spacious two-bedroom show home will be unveiled by Jones Homes during its open house event at Bluebell Meadow in Wisborough Green on Saturday (22nd June).
Homes at Bluebell Meadow were inspired by the belief that people do not want to compromise on space or design, no matter how many bedrooms they require.
Jones Homes has designed a stunning collection of two to four-bedroom homes which truly offer something for everyone.
The Petworth show home is a two-bedroom semi-detached house which demonstrates how modern layouts can make best use of interior space. The interior design is light and airy, echoing the tone set by the three-bedroom Haslemere show home. It will also be open to visitors during the event, along with a two-bedroom detached Bolney home.
Sara Stanhope, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes Southern, said: “Wisborough Green is a beautiful village and it was important that our homes felt in keeping with their surroundings. From the outside, the designs are traditional. Inside, we have taken a forward-thinking approach to design, creating spaces for family time, entertaining and relaxing.
“When people view the homes at Bluebell Meadow they are invariably taken aback by the generous proportions of the rooms, as well as the quality of fixtures and fittings and of course, the enviable setting. We have found that these homes appeal to people who previously thought new homes wouldn’t be suitable or large enough for them.
“To mark the opening of our second show home, we decided to invite people to view a variety of homes so they can see how they differ from the norm and consider which might be right for them.”
The two-bedroom homes at Bluebell Meadow are equally suited to first-time buyers, downsizers and small families. The Bolney features a 17ft living room, a kitchen/dining room of the same length, upstairs two 17ft bedrooms and a garden room. It is priced at £505,000.
The Petworth has a 14ft dining room flowing into a 15ft kitchen and boasts a 13ft living room. Upstairs are two bedrooms measuring 15ft and 13ft respectively. Prices start from £445,000.
Jones Homes will be welcoming visitors to its open day from 11am to 5pm on Saturday. The sales team will be on hand to explain the features of each home, including the specification of the fixtures and fittings.
Prices range from £440,000 to £950,000 for the two to four-bedroom houses at Bluebell Meadow. To find out more call 01403 701033, see jones-homes.co.uk or visit the event.
A collection of landscaped gardens set against a wild-flowering quarry face will be open to visitors during an event in Mayfield on Saturday (15/6).
Jones Homes will open the doors to four homes and gardens at Mayfield Place in Love Lane. Visitors will be welcomed with fizz and nibbles from 10am to 4pm.
Whether you’re interested in show home interior design, seeing the gardens in full bloom, or how the three-storey homes marry modern layouts and traditional design, there will be plenty to explore.
Sara Stanhope, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes Southern, said: “Mayfield is a quaint, traditional village, so building new homes here comes with great responsibility. At Mayfield Place, Jones Homes has created a small development which fits seamlessly within its surroundings.
“The gardens at Mayfield Place are a fine example of how new homes can integrate with the local environment. The quarry face is a stunning feature, which creates privacy and introduces a stunning array of wildflowers to the gardens. Combined with our landscape designs, this makes for a beautiful range of gardens, which are at their most impressive at this time of year.
“The homes which will be open to view are townhouses, which show how design principles have evolved in three-storey homes. The exteriors also draw inspiration from older homes in the village.
“New homes developments each have their own stories and characteristics. We look forward to welcoming anyone who would like to find out more to Mayfield Place on Saturday.”
Viewings at Mayfield Place are usually available by appointment only. Saturday’s Open Homes and Gardens Event coincides with and complements Mayfield Open Gardens, which takes place across the weekend.

A stunning new show home is set to launch at a luxury housing development in Burgess Hill.
Jones Homes will be opening the doors to the three-bedroom Elstead show home at Folders Grove on Saturday 22nd June.
It’s the first in a spectacular series of three show homes to be created at the development.
The mews-style Elstead property will showcase the impressive build quality and high specification which buyers can expect from a home at the development.
Folders Grove is an exquisite collection of three, four and five-bedroom homes located off Folders Lane at the southern edge of the town.
Sara Stanhope, Sales and Marketing Director for Jones Homes Southern said: “Located on the edge of the South Downs and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Burgess Hill is a charming town which has a wide array of amenities and is highly sought-after by house buyers. We are therefore expecting a great deal of interest in the homes at Folders Grove, which offer buyers the very best of modern living in a peaceful and attractive semi-rural location.
“We are very much looking forward to opening the first show home at Folders Grove and giving prospective purchasers the chance to see the spacious layouts and quality finish that are a feature of the houses we are building here.
“The Elstead is a superbly-designed property which would suit a range of buyers, from growing families to downsizers. It features an extremely spacious living room, stylish open-plan kitchen and dining area, and convenient cloakroom on the ground floor, while upstairs there are three generously-sized bedrooms, including the master bedroom with en suite shower room, and family bathroom.
“Boasting an excellent selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs, two shopping centres and a wealth of leisure facilities, Burgess Hill has so much to offer buyers, and with London Victoria only 48 minutes away by train, the town represents an extremely desirable option for commuters.
“We usually see a spike in interest whenever we launch the show home at a development, and we expect Folders Grove will be no exception. I would therefore encourage anyone interested in securing a home in this highly sought after and well-connected West Sussex town to come along to the launch of our show home on 22nd June and see for themselves what this luxury development has to offer.”
The sales centre at Folders Grove is open daily from 10am to 5.30pm. A range of three-bedroom houses are currently available, priced from £447,500.

An idyllic village location and modern house design proved a winning combination for retired couple John and Anne Bentley, who found their dream property at Jones Homes’ Mayfield Place development in Mayfield.
Relocating from Bristol to be nearer their daughter and grandson in Tunbridge Wells, John (69) and Anne (71) viewed numerous properties – both old and new – in the area, but it was the Chelwood townhouse at Mayfield Place which really stood out from the rest.
John, a former sales manager for a packaging company, said: “My wife and I generally gravitate towards old properties but this time our heads told us to buy a new build home for the lower maintenance requirements.
“It was the combination of the property itself and the village that we fell in love with. We really like the modern open-plan layout of the Chelwood and Mayfield is such a beautiful village – there is so much to do here.”
John and Anne, a former senior sales advisor for House of Fraser, moved from their older three-bedroom home into a three-storey three-bedroom Chelwood townhouse, which has a kitchen/breakfast room, an inner hallway with convenient downstairs cloakroom, and a spacious living/dining room with French doors that open into the garden.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one with an en suite and a family bathroom, and on the top floor the third double bedroom offers versatile accommodation as a master suite, guest accommodation, work or gym space.
John adds: “We were very open minded when we started to look at new properties to move to and it was a conscious decision to find a home that works better for us and requires less maintenance.
“We wanted to be nearer to our daughter and grandson but at the same our new home had to be right, and the Chelwood gave us everything we were looking for.
“The buying and aftercare process with Jones Homes has been brilliant and we feel so lucky to be living in such a quiet, sought after area with so many amenities on our doorstep.”
Mayfield Place is an exclusive development of just 13 three and four-bedroom homes in Love Lane, and there are now just five properties available to buy.
More information can also be found at Jones-Homes.co.uk.
Three-storey living is back in vogue – and it’s easy to see why when you visit Mayfield Place.
Jones Homes has created a stunning set of three-storey townhouses in Love Lane on the edge of Mayfield.
Drawing on 60 years of housebuilding experience, Jones Homes has delivered a masterclass in three-storey design.
From the luxurious master bedroom suite on the top floor, down to the ground floor open plan living area, these homes demonstrate how townhouse layout can marry space, light and value for money.
The finishing touches have been made and the final three homes available for sale are ready to move into.
Sara Stanhope, Sales Director for Jones Homes Southern, said: “There has been an identifiable increase in demand for three-storey homes in recent years.
“Providing the design is right, townhouses can offer fantastic value for money, while delivering the space people have come to expect in a new home.
“At Mayfield Place we have balanced elements of open-plan living with more traditional design. The kitchens are created as separate rooms and the living/dining area provides a large reception room with doors onto the garden.
“There are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor and the 15tf x 14ft top floor bedroom suite has an en suite and dressing area.
“When we show people around the homes, they are invariably surprised at just how spacious they are. With just three remaining for sale, I’d encourage anyone who is looking to secure maximum space for their budget to make an appointment to take a look around.”
Mayfield Place is a small development of homes on either side of Love Lane. The homes have been designed to include architectural accents which draw on the features of established buildings in the village. Jones Homes has created characterful homes without the high maintenance costs associated with older homes.
The first phase of three and four-bedroom homes is also complete. The development has generated almost £55,000 of investment in the local community through planning contributions.
Homes at Mayfield Place carry Jones Homes’ hallmark of exemplary quality. Details such as Porcelanosa tiles, Neff kitchen appliances, integrated wine coolers, Villeroy and Boch bathrooms and Hansgrohe taps are provided as standard.
The remaining homes at Mayfield Place are available to purchase from £450,000. To arrange a viewing contact Lambert and Foster Estate Agents on 01435 873999. For more information see jones-homes.co.uk.
