Our South Midlands team has announced their sponsorship of a Malvern-based cricket club, close to our Malvern Rise development in the Worcestershire town.

The team has supported the club with a sponsorship for the sporting year – raising our profile in the area as we develop our communities in the South Midlands region, which includes Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire.

Established in 1872, Colwall Cricket Club has a range of teams. In 1926, the Women’s Cricket Association was formed in 1926 following a series of women’s games, with this tradition continuing today. More recently the club celebrated victory at Lord’s Cricket Ground, winning the 2020 National Village Cup.

Jak Harper, Construction Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said: “We’re proud to be sponsoring Colwall Cricket Club as we expand our presence in the South Midlands region. What we do is about so much more than just building high quality homes, it’s also about supporting the communities in and around our developments in the ways that have the most impact.

“Sport is one of the main ways in which community spirit can be fostered, so it’s a delight to be able to show our support to Colwall Cricket Club.”
