Quinn Estates come to the aid of Ashford Railway Club with car park upgrade
A smoother welcome awaits visitors to Ashford Railway Club thanks to Quinn Estates after members of the leading South East developer’s construction team gave up their time to resurface the carpark.
The social club, based In Bath Meadow, Beaver Road, Ashford, was in the headlines last September after a former employee admitted stealing £15,000 in club funds. The work carried out by Quinn Estates has not only ensured this project could go ahead but freed up funds to pay for further ongoing maintenance.
Mark Quinn, Chairman and CEO of Quinn Estates said, “Ashford Railway Club is an important community facility for the local area, so we were delighted to support this when the club approached us for help.
“We always seek to leave a positive legacy in those areas in which we develop – from new sports facilities to supporting community organisations – and this donation is part of that ongoing mission.”
Quinn Estates has a long and successful history of building in Ashford, working closely with the local community to deliver projects such as the award-winning Connect 38 building, the first phase of Ashford’s Commercial Quarter driving new jobs and investment to the heart of the town.
The company continues to invest in the borough, from new homes in Victoria Way, currently under construction, to exciting new proposals at East Stour Park, Norman Road; Conningbrook Park, Kennington; and Newtown Works close to Ashford International rail station.
Tony Fortune, Secretary of Ashford Railway Club added: “We’re overwhelmed with the support that we have received from Quinn Estates. As an independent club, we rely on donations and membership fees to keep the grounds maintained and welcoming for all, however in recent months we have struggled.
“The support from Quinn Estates will make a huge difference to the layout and usability of our car park. On behalf of all our members, we would like to thank Quinn Estates and the teams involved who helped to make this possible.”
