Wishaw Wycombe: Community Benefits

JR Group are making fantastic progress with a project which will provide high-quality, affordable housing in Wishaw.

Delivered in partnership with social housing provider Link Group, the works are taking place in East Academy Street – former site of the Wishaw Market, a cattle market which dates back to the mid-1990s.

The site consists of 30 homes for mid-market rent and social housing which will provide much-needed, affordable properties in the area. It will be comprised of six terraced houses, two terraced houses, two semi-detached houses and 22 flats.

As part of the company’s engagement with the community and their commitment to delivering local benefits alongside their projects, JR Group have agreed to be the main sponsor of the Wishaw Wycombe amateur football team.

The company have provided funding for new kits and equipment which will help the Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers in the New Year and beyond.

This activity forms part of JR Group’s wider approach to bring added value to the communities that they work in by lending support to local groups, clubs and initiatives.

Wishaw Wycombe football team manager, Ross Murdoch, said the team are thrilled to have received the support.

He said: “We are delighted to be involved with The JR Group and are extremely grateful for their sponsorship which will go a long way in assisting the team this season and next.”
