Developer Joins Burton Latimer For Quack-Tastic Summer Date

Community-minded developer Linden Homes Midlands has been showing its support for one of the most important dates in the Burton Latimer social calendar.

Staff joined organisers and the hundreds of visitors to enjoy the sunshine at the town’s annual Duck Race at the Pocket Park.

Linden Homes, which is currently building a range of three, four and five-bedroom homes at the Buckby Grange development on Higham Road backed the event for the second year by meeting the printing cost of thousands of leaflets.

As well as the Duck Race, organisers say the family fun day – complete with bouncy castles, canoe rides, pond dipping, tractor rides and various charity stalls – will help boost coffers to support the much-used Pocket Park and the Burton Latimer Scouts.

Linden Homes Midlands area sales manager Tracey Gibson said: “We recognise what a very important date the Duck Race is in the local social calendar, and one which is greatly supported by the local community.

“Having established ourselves in the town over the past couple of years through a number of new homes developments, we were once again delighted to be involved in a fantastic, fun family event.”

Duck Race co-ordinator and local town councillor Maureen Jerram said: “Our huge thanks to Linden Homes once again for their generosity in helping with the leaflet for the event which attracted many people from the village and further afield.”
