Cruising The Crest to Celebrate

Posted on July 25, 2011 | News

England’s longest lake played host to 50th anniversary celebrations of one of the area’s best-known housing developers.

Award-winning Russell Armer Homes welcomed 130 guests from across Europe for a Windermere charity cruise in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and the Great North Air Ambulance.

David Russell, founder of the Kendal business which has built over 3,000 homes, flew from France to join friends of the firm from Spain, Jersey and across northern England.

Manager director Martyn Nicholson said it was a special night, where many achievements and memories were shared.

He added: “For half a century we have provided homes for a great many people. A number of our buyers have stayed with us over the decades, moving from one successful development to another. Covering a wide area, we are currently working on sites in Kendal, Penrith, Dalston, Kirkby Lonsdale and Ingleton. We are proud of our quality, standing and the recognition we have received in national building competitions.”

“Since our 40th anniversary, we have supported both Macmillan and the air ambulance, raising around £20,000. Making these worthwhile causes the focus of this anniversary gathering added to the occasion!”
