Nigel Evans, MP for Ribble Valley, said “I was delighted to visit Brindle Park earlier this month and meet with the many apprentices at Persimmon who are being trained to the very highest level in the skills needed to build new homes. They were all incredibly enthusiastic and I was hugely impressed and delighted to see the results of their new skills whilst I toured the site.”

Anthony Mansfield, Managing Director of Persimmon Lancashire: "We always welcome the opportunity to demonstrate our role in delivering new housing, and so we were delighted to host Nigel Evans MP.

“Persimmon is absolutely committed to delivering high-quality homes for local people, with nearly half of our customers over the last two years being first-time buyers.

“Working with local political stakeholders, we hope to be able to continue to deliver much-needed new homes for local homebuyers across Lancashire.”
