Our community engagement team has been hard at work with the residents and local community at Shawbrook Manor in Leyland, Lancashire, in preparation for the Coronation of King Charles III. To mark the historical occasion, residents will be gifted beautiful, blooming rose bushes and the community will be brought together through a sunflower growing challenge.

 Alongside the Shawbrook Manor committee, which is dedicated to planning coronation celebrations, Lovell is providing 70 commemorative rose bushes to brighten front gardens across the development for everyone to enjoy. 600 Sunflower seeds will also be donated to families across the community who want to be in with a chance of winning vouchers and bug hotels if they grow either the tallest or shortest plant.

Laura Taylor, community engagement manager at Lovell, said: “We were so pleased that we could combine our plans with the coronation committee at Shawbrook Manor to roll out the celebration with a plan that will bring even more members of the community together. The rose bushes will make a lasting, positive difference to the development’s gardens and I’m sure they will become an enduring reminder of the coronation.  

“My role is all about working closely with the communities we create and making an impact that will be felt long after the development is complete. The timing of the coronation alongside the near completion of Shawbrook Manor makes for a unique and fantastic reason for everyone to get together and celebrate.”  

Kathryn Clay from the Shawbrook Manor coronation committee, said: “We formed the committee in response to the King’s request for people to volunteer their time to positively impact their local area. We’re so pleased to have combined forces with Lovell to have the opportunity to provide those residents that want to take part with some fantastic new additions for their gardens.”
