Our work in the community

At Lexden Builders, we believe in helping our local communities as much as we can. We regularly take out advertising with Colchester United at the Jobserve Community Stadium, and we actively assist young people in getting more involved in their local team so they can learn valuable skills through sport.

We’re proud sponsors of Stanway Rovers Youth, and we support the team by supplying their home and away kits every season. By helping to shape the future of grassroots football, we’re enabling more local youngsters to keep fit, meet new friends, form strong bonds with their peers, and take these positive traits and attributes through into their future careers.
