Some of our wonderful team spent a day volunteering in Cromer last month collecting litter as part of an initiative to mark 50 years since our first partnership development. The team of 12 from our East Anglian sales team, headed to Warren Woods and the surrounding area, collecting a huge 12 bags of rubbish.

To mark our 50th anniversary, staff have been volunteering within their local communities over a 50 day period this summer, making a “50-Day Difference” to the areas they live and work in. The sales team decided to use their volunteering day to help clean up an area in Cromer which is outside the Council’s usual litter picking route and needed some TLC.

We caught up with Natasha Baring, our field sales manager for Lovell in East Anglia, who said: “We’re delighted to do our bit to help maintain such a beautiful area for everyone's enjoyment. The benefits of getting out and about in nature are well known but litter detracts from this, so we wanted to use our Lovell 50-Day Difference event to support the town and help create a cleaner environment for wildlife, locals and visitors too. We enjoyed the day tremendously and I’m so proud of the team for their efforts.”

Cllr Nigel Lloyd, portfolio holder for environmental services, climate change and environment at North Norfolk District Council, said: “It is wonderful that Lovell staff have been out and about picking litter in our District. I wish to thank them publicly for their efforts in helping to keep the area clean. North Norfolk is an area of great beauty in terms of the natural environment, its heritage and its architecture, so it is important that we all respect its unique character by keeping it free of litter. I am sure both residents and our many visitors would join me in thanking Lovell staff for their efforts.”

We are committed to working with partners with a shared goal to build great places to live – a place where families can grow and communities can thrive. A commitment which is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago.

We have a number of developments across Norfolk and Suffolk, including nearby Holt and Acle, Wymondham, Newton St Faiths and Walsham le Willows.
