Community initiative helps Fremington residents

Residents living in Fremington have recently benefitted from some support for their grounds maintenance scheme, thanks to a community initiative by North Devon Homes. When awarding some larger contracts, North Devon Homes will take into account the contributions offered by the contractor which would benefit the wider local community.

A group of private residents living in Fremington, asked if we could help move a boat, that is currently being used as a planter, as it was very heavy. The group collectively manage the grounds maintenance and the planting of the boats on their estate. The boat needed moving as it was situated under a tree and nothing would grow in it due to the area being shaded. 

Our partners Westcountry Maintenance Services helped to move the boat into it's new position using a lorry and crane, even taking time to show an interested young resident how the lorry works!

The boat is now in its new position ready for planting.
