Dorset Homebuilders are showing their support for Armed Forces Veterans this Remembrance Period by installing flags on all of their Dorset developments.
Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes hoisted the flags at Quarter Jack Park in Wimborne, Canford Paddock in Poole and Compass Point in Swanage, displaying the motto “Lest We Forget” with a poppy pattern. The flags are now in place and will remain in place in the weeks leading up to Remembrance Sunday, November 14. The five-star homebuilder will also observe a two-minute silence at 11 a.m. on November 11 during developments.
The flags are just one measure Barratt and David Wilson Homes are deploying to show their support for the military and not just this time of year. Barratt and David Wilson Homes have always been a big supporter of the military. Homebuilders have attracted more than 70 veterans to the business through the Armed Forces Transition Program, which accounted for 90% of all interns hired in the past 18 months. The program gives veterans the opportunity to develop careers after leaving the military, connecting those leaving the armed forces with a job outside.
Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ Community Liaison Manager, Anthony Dimmick, a former corporal of the Marchwood-based 17 Port and Maritime Regiment and received a commendation for his service during the Falklands War, said: “The transition program prioritizes military personnel looking to leave the forces within the last 12 months of their career. As a former member of the forces, I know how difficult it can be to make the transition from the military to everyday life, so the work Barratt and David Wilson Homes are doing to encourage people to return to the world. of the work is extremely commendable.
