The company has provided a new Nike football strip for Reffley Youth Football Club’s under-8s players. Lovell is currently undertaking a major housing regeneration programme at Hillington Square, King’s Lynn, and is also about to start work on a major new-build homes development in the area.
Thanking the company, Reffley Youth FC under-8s coach and club chairman Mark Kilvington says: “The under-8s are a great little bunch of lads and they are all very excited about having the new kit.
“Support like this from Lovell is such a help to the club which is one of the biggest in the area and entirely run by volunteers. We have to pay for everything ourselves. Although we do a lot of fundraising, to get sponsorship from people who want to help is very important; we would struggle without it.”
The Reffley under-8s – who play five-a-side with an eight-strong squad – are members of the Mid Norfolk Youth League where they are so far unbeaten. Home games are played at Reffley Community School.
Lovell construction manager Michael Saunders, says: “Getting involved and supporting local organisations and groups is a crucial part of our work in communities. We’re really pleased to have been able to help out at Reffley Youth FC and hope the under-8s enjoy playing in their new kit. We’ll be following how they do and wish them the best of luck for the rest of the season.”
This year, Lovell began the third phase of a large-scale redevelopment programme for Freebridge Community Housing at the Hillington Square estate in King’s Lynn. Lovell is also preparing to start work on 130 new homes at Marsh Lane, King’s Lynn. They are the first set to be built through a development management agreement with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk which will see Lovell deliver up to 600 homes with a potential value of up to £80 million in the King’s Lynn area over the next five years.
