Donated and installed in conjunction with UK Fencing and Landscaping, the fence is roughly one metre high and stretches 10 metres along the park, and has improved the park’s security, helping local children to stay safe.
Elmhurst Park plays a central role in the community of Hutton, with many families and their children and grandchildren spending time there. With this in mind, Lovell decided to give something back to the community and use the park as a focal point for some of its community work.
Councillor Ben Groom of Hutton Parish Council, who worked with Lovell to install the fence, said: “Following consultation and site visits with members of the Lovell team, the new fence was successfully installed, helping to protect park users whilst enhancing the park’s appearance and access. This has formed part of the Parish Council’s overall park refurbishment project.”
Mark Herbert, Managing Director of UK Fencing and Landscaping, said: “We at UK Fencing and Landscaping LTD were more than happy to supply and install the fencing at Elmhurst Park in Hutton. Lovell came to us as we are the Fencing and Landscaping contractor at its site Foxglove Meadows, the park was unsecure and needed a fence to make it a secure place for the public. It’s nice to see developers and contractors wanting to give back to the community.”
Gemma Clissett, regional partnerships director at Lovell, said: “At Lovell, it is very important to us to give back to the communities we build in, and what better way to do that than by supporting the residents that live in Hutton by enhancing their local park.
“We were delighted to be able to make the park a more fun and safer environment for the children. We wish the community all the best and hope they enjoy their upgraded park.”
Foxglove Meadows, situated off Woodside Avenue in Hutton, is a sought-after collection of 81 two, three and four-bedroom homes, and is the second Lovell development in Weston-super-Mare.
