Local housebuilder and development company Larkfleet Group recently supported Bourne’s entry into the East Midlands in Bloom Competition.
Bourne is participating in this competition – the largest horticultural campaign in the UK – along with many other towns, villages and cities in the country.
Communities are judged in three core areas – horticultural excellence, environmental responsibility and community participation.
The judging is now complete and the awards will be announced in September.
Fingers are crossed for at least another silver gilt award to match the last three entries, but a gold award would be a phenomenal result.
Larkfleet Group joins many other local businesses, community groups and individuals who have given both time and resources to ensure Bourne has been looking at its best, not only for the judging but throughout the summer months.
Volunteers from the community have been helping design and plant borders and planters, as well as picking up litter and tidying up the town. The tidy-up has identified and cleared a number of potential wildlife sites. The ethos of the competition resonates strongly with the Larkfleet Group - both of them focus on environmental responsibility, sustainability and community participation.
The Larkfleet Group takes its environmental responsibility very seriously and strives to demonstrate environmental best practice and sustainability across all the projects and developments it undertakes and delivers for customers.
One development built using these practices is The Croft development, located on North Road in Bourne, pictured below. It is also flourishing as a community, offering social events and activities to residents and the wider over 55s community in Bourne.
