Local charity Bloom in Kingseat from the village of Kingseat in Fife has received a donation of 500 spring bulbs as part of our national Proud campaign to show our commitment and pride in leaving a lasting legacy in the communities in which we build.
The volunteers for Bloom in Kingseat will plant the bulbs around one of the benches in the village where they are set to grow into a bright, floral tribute to the local area.
We have also donated £500 towards the beautiful floral displays the Bloom in Kingseat volunteers create in the village every year.
Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said: “We are proud to be building a new community at our stylish development in Kingseat, and we want to leave a place that both our customers and other local residents will enjoy long after we have finished building. We were thrilled to welcome back the volunteers from Bloom in Kingseat to receive this year’s donation of £500, as well as 500 spring bulbs. We are sure that the bulbs will grow into a lovely display that people of Kingseat will admire in years to come.”
Now in its 12th year, the Bloom in Kingseat Group consists of a vital core of 10 – 12 volunteers who are all retired, and give up their time and use their expertise to enhance the overall look of the village. The group creates and maintains flowerbeds, display tubs and hanging baskets, and encourages the spread of wild flowers and spring bulbs.
Stewart Gunn, Chair of Bloom in Kingseat said: “It’s great to see a company like Taylor Wimpey think about the wider community while they are building in the local area, and leave something beautiful behind that will last for years to come.
“Last year we received a healthy boost to our funds, and this year we are delighted to see our partnership extended to be part of Taylor Wimpey’s wider initiative to plant spring bulbs in locations where it builds across the area. Of course this year’s boost of £500 will allow us to continue to create the beautiful floral displays in the village, which helps us to maintain our gold award status in the Beautiful Fife awards."
