If you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch. We hope you are all keeping safe and well during this difficult time.

Spring has sprung in South Cave!

Westcote Farm is a distinctive development nestled within the quaint village of South Cave. The 23-home scheme has seen considerable interest and now only has one property remaining for sale.

The Sorocco has been designed with a busy family in mind. Features include:

  • a games room
  • study
  • three bathrooms
  • underfloor heating throughout the ground floor

  • south facing garden overlooking the stream that runs through the development

The property boasts a bespoke kitchen and bathrooms and has been fitted to the highest specification. It’s a house a family can truly call a home.

Westcote Farm is set within picturesque surroundings that are steeped in history. The scheme has merged materials from the original buildings with a contemporary yet classic design. Westcote Farm even includes an historic dovecote, which has been completely refurbished.

Risby Sponsors Local Netball Team

As a team that are proud to support our community, we’re happy to announce our sponsorship of a local netball team, contributing towards vital costs for new playing dresses, Velcro bibs and shorts.

A cause that is particularly close to our hearts – with our Site Co-ordinator Amy being a member for three years, it gives us great pride to be able to name the team ‘Risby Homes’.

We’re also thrilled to have our company logo on the dedicated team’s dresses, and to be the first sponsors they have received for a number of years.

First formed 15 years ago, team Risby Homes consists of a mixture of players varying from ages 18 to 60, all with different abilities and a passion for netball. All living within the East Yorkshire area, their members range from women who play a few times a week, to players who are looking for a route back into the sport.

Playing in the Hull Works League against nine other teams, Risby Homes play a series of matches throughout the season against various other local teams, including Specsavers, Natwest, BP Chemicals A and Segals.

After a great season, Risby Homes has won an amazing eight out of eleven games!
