Chesney Forks duets with Taylor Lift at Chestnut Homes site
Chesney Forks and Taylor Lift are the latest additions to the team at Lincolnshire developer Chestnut Homes.
The pair – named after pop idols of very different eras – are among nine new telehandler machines being purchased by the company.
All of the machines have been named by people who entered a competition run the housebuilder.
Chestnut Homes challenged creative minds to come up with fun names for the new machines, which will be used for lifting materials on its sites across the county.
Chesney Forks, named by Izzy Laycock, and Taylor Lift, named by Jess Payne, will be teaming up at The Quadrant development in Boston.
Meanwhile, Big Giraffe and Henry the Helper, named by Mick Kirk and Helen Coote respectively, will both be located at Saxon Fields, development in Skegness which Chestnut Homes is building.
Yellow Belly, named by Chestnut Homes employee Lesley Warner, will be working at LN6 in Lincoln and Ruby, named by Sam Fowler, will be based at The Grange in Scothern.
Railway Paths, a new project in Boston, will be home to Bob, named by Ellis Sargent, while Kings Manor in Coningsby will welcome Chestnutty, named by Katheryn Behan.
David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “We thought it would be great to inject a bit of personality into our new telehandlers by inviting people from across Lincolnshire to come up with interesting and unusual names for the machines.
“We received some very entertaining suggestions and I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to enter the competition.
“The names will now be emblazoned on the side of the telehandlers and we are really looking forward to seeing them going out to site.”
Those whose suggested names were chosen to adorn the machines each received a prize of a gift voucher and Sam - who accompanied his suggestion with a drawing - won the top prize of a family ticket for Go Ape Treetop Adventure.Back To News
