LOVELL HOMES has revealed its tribute to local heroes, with the naming of Weston Woods’ streets dedicated to local councillor John Hammond and four Weston World War veterans in honour of their contribution to the village.
John Hammond Close, and the other roads at Weston Woods, were unveiled in a celebratory event on Friday 12 November, attended by councillors, family members and the Lovell site team. The road was named after John, who passed away three years ago, to celebrate all the great work he did for the local area.
Alfred Edward Brereton, Allen Dunn, Thomas Henry Lovatt and James Eli B Platt were all
born and raised in the village of Weston and fought in WWI as part of the Cheshire Regiment. Their names can be found at the Weston Church, commemorated on a WWI plaque in remembrance.
Anne-Marie O’Doherty, regional sales director at Lovell Homes, said: “Unveiling John Hammond Close and all the Weston Woods’ road names was a very special event that paid homage to people who lived in and shaped Weston into the village that we all love today.
“John Hammond was a key pillar of the community, committed to ensuring that the spirit of the local area remained intact. We’re therefore very pleased to commemorate him through the street dedication, as well as the local village heroes who gave their life in WWI.”
Weston Woods is a 99-home development located in the heart of the village. With a collection of three, four and five-bed houses and two-bed bungalows, Lovell Homes has worked hard to create a development that fits seamlessly into the local community.
John Cornell, councillor and vice chair of the Weston and Basford Parish Council, said: “I worked very closely with John for a number of years, and he was incredibly passionate about the local area.
“As a councillor for more than 20 years he was very much a man of action when it came to new proposals and developments in the region. He was incredibly well known and liked in the area so I know the whole village will be really pleased to see him remembered in such a permanent way.”
As well as providing new homes for the area, Lovell Homes has also created 1.36ha of public open space with a new children’s play area located towards the east of the development and attenuation pond to the south.
