We've been celebrating at the new Sevenairs Road supported housing development in Beighton, Sheffield, which saw the unveiling of an art stone marking Guinness’ 125th anniversary.

Celebrating 125 years with commemorative art stonesA hand-carved art stone was installed into the building, which saw its first residents move in earlier this year. The £2.3 million scheme consists of 20 one-bedroom apartments and was built as part of Guinness’s contribution to the Homes and Communities Agency’s Affordable Homes Programme 2011–2015.

Allan Ramsay, Director of Investment and Regeneration, said: “Celebrating our 125th anniversary is an ideal time to reflect on our commitment to providing quality affordable homes to those who need them most.

“We’re incredibly proud to be installing our first art stone at Sevenairs Road to commemorate this milestone and round off such a monumental year, and we look forward to starting on brand new developments in 2016 and beyond.”
