Our Construction Director, Nick Brasier, has joined in the fun and literally got on his bike to find some of the Elmers out there, on Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade, taking place all around Maidstone this summer.
51 large individually designed Elmers and 30 baby elephants are located across the town on river, nature and heritage walks which make up the 6 miles of the trail. Following the end of the Parade the baby elephants will return to the schools, nurseries and clubs they came from and the large Elmers will be auctioned to raise funds for Heart of Kent Hospice.
Our new homes arm, Westerhill Homes is the proud Official Presenting Partner for the event, and has two large Elmers, ‘Where’s Elmer’ by Martin Handford creator of ‘Where’s Wally’, and ‘Heard Across The County’ in their brand colour of purple. CCE ( Chartway Civil Engineering) has also sponsored an Elmer named ‘Zebrelmer’.
As well as the two Elmers, Westerhill Homes also gifted four baby elephants to local schools; Coxheath Primary School, Loose Primary School, Jubilee Primary School and Cornwallis Academy.
The Elmer’s offer the chance to enjoy some very special rewards when you enter the unique codes into the app!

Nick says ‘ It was great fun to combine my love of biking with finding some of the Elmer’s, it such a great cause and the sculptures are all brilliant. I’d encourage anyone thinking of doing the trail to do so, as they definitely won’t be disappointed’
