The spring and summer of 2020 will be one we will not easily forget. Like many businesses during this time, the safety of our employees and clients was at the forefront of our minds when deciding on a date to return to the office. Having worked hard to ensure all the appropriate Covid changes were made to our newly refurbished and extended office, we were absolutely delighted to welcome back the full Reside team on 7th September. The plentiful summer sunshine has certainly energised us all and our land and planning teams in particular are busier than ever. We never actually closed the doors for business, but now more than ever Reside Developments is well and truly open for business. We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully seeing you, in person, soon.
As a multi award winning company Reside Developments is delighted to be one of the sponsors for the 2020 Surrey Property Awards. Through a dedicated voting website the awards aim to recognise the best of the best in Surrey. The Surrey Property Awards will be held on 26th November at GLive Guildford in the company of the Mayor of Guildford and the fabulously entertaining guest speaker Gyles Brandreth and compere Sarah Gobran. We look forward to seeing all our friends and colleagues in November.
True to form the Reside team are always ready and very willing to be involved with charity challenges. In place of the 2020 London Marathon the 2.6 challenge was set-up and there was no shortage of participants from the team and their families. We had running, climbing, ping pong, trampoline, press-ups, cartwheels, football, rugby, dog tricks, bike rides, eating, golf and beer pong - sans beer!
We are so delighted to confirm that our joint effort raised £960 for 'halow project', a local Guildford charity committed to helping young people with learning difficulties.

Reside Developments & Savills take on DIY Challenge for Lewes Scout Hut
On Wednesday 9th October, Reside & the Savills South East Development team undertook the monumental task of restoring the 6th Lewes Group Scout Hut. The Hut suffered serious damage after a night of mindless vandalism and ever since, the Scouts and other community groups that use the Hut have had a nomadic existence.
We cannot thank everyone enough for their time, effort and kind donations whilst refurbishing the Scout Hut. We are very proud of everyone’s efforts, team work and positive attitude on getting the hut safe and ready for the children.
