The funds have been put towards making improvements to the Leicester Forest East Community Library by making it more secure and are part of the developer’s commitment to the local area.

Local David Wilson Homes Site Manager Karl Chandler attended the library to show the developer’s support for the local community, where he was met by library trustees Georgina Robson and Lynn Ashton.

Georgina from the Leicester Forest East Community Library, said: “This donation has made a huge difference to our library users during library opening hours and the safety of the families and children attending Stafford Leys school. Their safety is paramount to us. We have had many positive comments from members of the public, praising the fact that we have claimed our car park back.”

Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “Investing in local areas is an important part of a new housing scheme and as a five star housebuilder we pride ourselves on our commitment to supporting the communities in and around our developments.

“We were delighted to make a contribution to the extension of the Leicester Forest East Community Library and we look forward to further supporting the community in and around the area as our development Forest Chase progresses.”

Forest Chase has a series of road links nearby that connect residents to the surrounding areas, which is great news for commuters.

The M1 and M69 are easily accessible, providing direct links to Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, Coventry and Birmingham. And with Leicester Train Station nearby, residents can get a train into London in just over an hour. The development is also well served for a number of bus routes, with regular buses into Leicester and other major towns and cities further afield. 

Residents will have plenty of shopping, dining and entertainment options, with Fosse Park and Meridian Leisure Park both just a short drive away.
