Homebuilder Miller Homes has made a donation to Let's Grow Preston, a local community organisation dedicated to promoting sustainable gardening practices and fostering a sense of community spirit through growing and design workshops. 

Let’s Grow Preston, located nearby to Miller Homes’ Beacon Park development in Catterall, has been serving the community for several years by providing opportunities for local residents to come together and participate in a range of gardening activities. Its mission is to create green spaces that enrich the environment, improve mental and physical health, and encourage community cohesion.

With the aim of supporting Let's Grow Preston's vision, Miller Homes has donated 15 bags of nutrient-rich compost, which will aid in nourishing the gardens and promoting healthy plant growth. Additionally, a heavy-duty wheelbarrow has been provided to assist the organisation's dedicated volunteers in carrying out regular maintenance tasks efficiently and effectively.

Annie Wynn, development manager at Let's Grow Preston, expressed her gratitude for Miller Homes' generous contribution, stating: "We are thrilled to receive this donation from Miller Homes. The compost and wheelbarrow will greatly enhance our ability to maintain and develop our gardens sustainably. It's heartening to see a company like Miller Homes actively engaging with the local community and supporting initiatives that benefit us all." 

Clare Noakes, sales director at Miller Homes, commented: "As a responsible homebuilder, Miller Homes recognises the importance of sustainable practices and the positive impact they can have on the communities we serve. We are delighted to contribute to their efforts and support the growth and development of these valuable local gardens."

Let's Grow Preston is doing exceptional work in promoting green spaces and fostering community bonds. In addition to managing three sites, Let's Grow Preston supports a network of 34 group members who are friends of parks, green spaces, and community gardens across Preston.

The organisation also works with allotmenteers, collecting surplus food products and distributing it to the food hub networks. Last year, over eight weeks, the allotmenteers of Preston donated enough food for 8,000 meals. This helped to sequester 1 tonne of carbon, which is the same amount of carbon that a tree sequesters over its lifetime of 40 to 100 years.

Let's Grow Preston's collaboration with Miller Homes showcases the power of local partnerships and demonstrates the collective commitment to environmental sustainability and community well-being. The organisation's dedication to engaging residents in gardening activities aligns perfectly with Miller Homes' broader sustainability initiatives.

Miller Homes’ development in the Catterall area, Beacon Park, has just a handful of three- to - five -bedroom homes remaining, all of which are sustainably built and feature spaces for home working and flexible living. According to the NHBC, it was found that new homes such as these can save up to £3,100 on energy bills as opposed to older builds.  

The development sales centre on site is now open to visit at Joe Lane, Catterall, PR3 0QD. Those wanting to find out more can also register their interest online.
