During the 2nd week of March Sam Gelder achieved the incredible feat of completing ‘7 Marathons in 7 Days’. The aim was to raise £12,000 for charities Cancer Research and The Gelder Charitable Trust.
Just Giving pages were set-up and people were extremely generous with their donations with £49,475.20 raised in total, £9,687 for Cancer Research UK and £39,678.20 for ‘The Gelder Charitable Trust’.
The Gelder Charitable Trust was set-up to provide support, financial or otherwise for construction workers and their families when they become incapacitated through illness or accident with three people/families already having received support.
The £1.6m contract to add additional facilities to the College has now been completed. The new two-story building comprising of workshops for practical skills development, teaching laboratories and offices space for staff and amenities. Whilst the project was slightly delayed in completion due to the National lockdown, construction soon re-commenced once manufacturing and other key suppliers re-started having gone into temporary closure. Feedback from the clients has been very positive and commented ‘Excellent performance and outstanding quality’. Additional contracts for almost £1m were also completed on site included the demolition and alteration of existing bedroom accommodation, formation of new classrooms, workshop and associated office/administration/welfare accommodation and the replacement of existing windows, doors and external render.
The last property was sold last week to Mr & Mrs Shephard who are delighted to be moving into Knaith Park. They instantly fell in love with Heynings Court and although it was a stressful process with frustrating solicitors, Ken says “it’s definitely been worth it”. They are looking forward to opening their bottle of champagne & celebrating the beginning of their new life in Knaith Park.

Over 10 years in the making, Gelder Living has secured a £1.6m order to develop a redundant garage site in Sturton by Stow which will deliver 14no 1, 2 and 3 bedroomed homes and much needed affordable semi-detached bungalows in Sturton by Stow.
The scheme originally started life in 2009 but many legal, planning, drainage and funding issues needed to be overcome.
Work on the 52 week project will start immediately and will also deliver several local apprenticeship opportunities.
Mr & Mrs Charteris become the latest Gelder Living homeowners to move into our Heynings Court development.

Gelder Living has boosted its land bank by a further 26 plots by securing a development site at Moortown Road, Nettleton on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
It is hoped that work will start on site in early 2022 with the first completions planned for the Autumn.
Nettleton is one of Lincolnshire’s most desirable locations situated not only on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty but also 1 mile South West of the market town of Caistor with catchment to Caistor Grammar School, which was named as the 2019 Top East Midlands School.

We are absolutely delighted with the Local Authority planning Department for granting us this permission which will see us further expand and create additional jobs at our Sturton by Stow Complex.
Planning has been granted for B1/B2 & B8 uses.
Gelder Group are delighted to be working on a project that the public will be able to use this summer. Overlooking the beautiful Brayford Pool, the viewing platform has been unused for a number of years for safety reasons, but the work undertaken will ensure it’s safe and ready for use by visitors for many years to come.
