We’re proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the annual Great Ellingham Teddy Bear Festival near Attleborough this summer. The Norfolk festival is centred around the famous Teddy Bear Trail which will run from Saturday 29th June to Sunday 14th July 2024, where bears can be spotted around the village. Proceeds raised go to charity.

Throughout the festival visitors and locals can enjoy garage sales, an art exhibition, a quiz and a treasure hunt! This is a huge draw for the village, with residents and businesses displaying teddy bears made from straw and other assorted materials, creating a unique and creative trail for all to enjoy! Printed trail maps are available to help visitors navigate their way around the village to see all the bears.

At Lovell, we will be working with our subcontractors CJB Scaffolding to have our bear on scaffolding – of course, in full PPE for safety!

Sasha Bainbridge, partnerships director at Lovell, comments: “This is such a fun event to be involved with and raises a considerable amount of money for local causes. The festival has been running since 2004 and is a brilliant way of bringing the community together. As well as sponsoring the festival, we will also have our own teddy bear in Lovell PPE to come and see – he will be high up on scaffolding so can’t be missed!”

Lovell is working in partnership with the Flagship Homes to bring 60 new affordable homes to the village at the Crown View development.
