One of Lincolnshire’s leading leisure companies has stepped up to help North Somercotes Parish Council finance a number of improved facilities.

Don Amott Parks, owners of Lakeside which is located in the village, has made a donation of £20,000 towards the cost of new projects which will benefit the village bowls and football clubs, the playing fields, the village institute and hall, North Somercotes Study Group and St Mary’s Church.

Chairman of the leisure group,

Don Amott, commented: “As a company we have always been

supportive of local initiatives and the Council’s plans will benefit all concerned. 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.”

The announcement was welcomed by East Lindsey District Councillor, Robert Palmer, who added: “We are extremely grateful for the generous donation from Don Amott Parks which will help the council to fulfil its commitment to provide more stimulating activities for the village, specially for its youngsters.”

The Don Amott Leisure Group has exciting news of its own with the announcement of plans for further development of Lakeside Park. Work start in September on a new gated estate of 90 luxurious holiday homes within the park’s delightful pine forest.

Don Amott director, Samantha Heap, said: “This is a brand new concept which provides privacy, security and one of the most desirable locations in the county.”
