ABOVE: Life-sized horse sculptures now feature at two holiday destinations

The focal feature of an award-winning entry at the prestigious BBC Gardeners World Live show has moved to two Lincolnshire holiday home parks.
The life-size wooden horse sculptures which were hand-carved by an artist in Asia are now on permanent display at Lakeside Park in North Somercotes and Whispering Waters, Mablethorpe.
The ambitious show garden created by Horticulture and Construction students at Derby College Group’s Broomfield Hall won a silver merit medal at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre in June.
The college teamed up with the Multiple Sclerosis Society and a range of sponsors headed by Don Amott Parks which has five Lincolnshire holiday parks. Key features of the garden, including the spectacular wooden horses, have now been rebuilt at Lakeside Park, close to the village of North Somercotes, just 12 miles from Louth.
Chairman, Don Amott said: “Having lost a cousin to Multiple Sclerosis, I was particularly keen to work alongside the MS Society on this project. It is a charity that is close to my heart.”

A leading holiday park operator has stepped up to help its local Parish Council finance a raft of improvements to leisure facilities and services in the area. Lincolnshire-based Don Amott Parks, owners of Lakeside Park which is located in North Somercotes, has made a donation of £20,000 towards the cost of new projects by Lincolnshire Parish Council.

The projects will benefit the village bowls and football clubs, the playing fields, the village Institute and hall, study group and St Marys Church.

Chairman of the leisure group, Don Amott, said: “As one of the area’s leading employers we feel that it is our responsibility to work hand-in-hand with the Council to improve the environment.”
