A defibrillator was kindly donated and has now been installed at the park.  A training and awareness course was held in a marquee on the field led by a LIVES trainer and attended by residents

Meadow Mowed

The meadow was mowed yesterday by a local farmer and was bailed today to make hay. 17 big bales of quality meadow hay. By removing the grass, it encourages more spring meadow flowers next year.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The residents celebrated the Queens Platinum Jubilee in style by throwing a Garden Party in her honour. A beautifully decorated Victoria sponge cake made by a resident together with other homemade sweets went down a treat with the bubbly. The DJ’s festive music got many of us dancing.

New Woodland Planted

A new area adjacent to the current woodland has been planted in hazels and silver birch. A chair has been located so people can sit and rest a while. In total, 50 more native trees have been planted this year. We have also sown wildflower seeds and planted daffodil bulbs around each hazel.

Donation to LIVES

Through 2020 the residents took part in lotteries and gave donation for LIVES and generously raised £600 which The Orchards Park has matched and made a donation of £1200. LIVES have over 700 Community First Responders and over 70 Medic Responders across Lincolnshire, all of them volunteers.

21 Years David Bellamy Gold Award

We have been awarded another Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award, the residents have been busy in the garden planting bee and insect friendly plants to make The Orchards an oasis of insects and birds. We have now achieved 21 years consecutive Gold Awards, the only residential park in the country.


The residents and the park have donated another £2000 to LIVES (Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service). £1,000 of this was from the generosity of the residents through the monthly lottery and other kind donations and this was matched by The Orchards Park Residential Limited. The Park has now donated more than £15,000 to this vital local charity
