The fund has given £250 to Gosberton (& District) Community Action Team (GCAT) to help fund the event.
Jane Parker of GCAT said: “GCAT aims to bring the community together with our projects and the events. The funding from Allison Homes will help to finance activities at the summer fair.”
The Larkfleet Homes Community Fund supports groups which enhance or develop local communities. It makes grants to charities or voluntary organisations within ten miles (16 kilometres) of any housing development by Larkfleet Homes or Allison Homes, both part of The Larkfleet Group of Companies which is based in Bourne, Lincolnshire.
Allison Homes is currently building new homes at Pinchbeck Fields near Spalding – a new development of 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom houses on the edge of the Lincolnshire village of Pinchbeck, just a few miles from Gosberton.
Karl Hick, CEO of Allison Homes, said: “A community is more than just houses. When we are building new homes we want to support the local groups that our residents can participate in to help build a real community.”
The summer fair – the second which GCAT has organised – will take place from 10:30 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday 10 June on the parish council playing field in Gosberton. It will include vintage vehicles and tractors, face painting, bouncy castle, craft isle, food isle, beer tent and Pimms stand plus an ice-cream stall for the children. There will also be many stalls from village groups and charitable organisations such as the good neighbour scheme and Royal British Legion. The show ring will host attractions such as a brass band.
