Introducing Eddie & Ellie

Two bright young faces you’ll be seeing more of at Woodgate are the young ecologist characters, Eddie and Ellie.

An exciting and innovative initiative by Thakeham Group, Eddie and Ellie will engage with children in communities around Thakeham developments (including some form of outdoor learning) to give them an understanding of the biodiversity efforts in place across the sites.

Eddie & Ellie’s Wild Adventures

Eddie & Ellie’s Wild Adventures is a cross-curriculum educational programme for lower KS2 pupils that is built around a children’s book.

It is a fundamental part of Thakeham’s Social Value approach, driving one of our four key Social Value goals – Building Future Generations.

Eddie & Ellie at Woodgate

You’ll soon see them on site signage around the development, giving information and advice on the flora and fauna you’ll find at Woodgate.
