We are 10 - and so is Ben!

Published 24 March 2015

 

Ben Appleton has certainly got something to celebrate - he shares his 10th birthday with us!

Ben was born on 21 March 2005 so we invited him to visit our head office to help cut our birthday cake in celebration of our special day.

He met WDH’s Chief Executive Kevin Dodd and over a slice of birthday cake, they talked about Ben's life so far and his plans for the future.

Ben moved to South Kirkby from Crofton three years ago, and is a Year 5 pupil at Northfield Junior and Infants School.  Along with being a fan of Minecraft and Lego, he is also a keen reader and a bit of an expert on history - including learning about life during World War II.

He shares his home on Holmsley Lane with his parents Nigel and Louise, older brother George and younger brother Alfie.

When he grows up, Ben is looking forward to a career working with computers - or maybe even working at Legoland!

Mum Louise said: "WDH have been absolutely brilliant, we've never had any issues or problems."

Dad Nigel said: "It didn't take us long to find a property using Homesearch and we've received a fantastic same day service, if we've ever needed a repair."
