Corby Glen community receive baa-riliant support from Lincolnshire housebuilder

Leading developer David Wilson Homes has made a donation of £1,200 to help fund this year’s Corby Glen Sheep Fair.

The event, which took place in the small village of Corby Glen located in the south of Lincolnshire, is believed to be the oldest Sheep Fair in the UK, dating back to 1238.

This year in October was the 785th time that the historic rural event took place, and David Wilson Homes decided to sponsor the event with its Pastures Place development on Bourne Road located nearby.

Toby Leete, Chairman of Corby Glen Sheep Fair, said:

“The Sheep Fair was the largest in a long time and with amazing weather, it was a great success.”

Throughout the entirety of Corby Glen Sheep Fair, there were a number of activities for families to enjoy, including a ‘Doorman’s Fair’, a sheep sale and farmers market, the Bailey Drew Sporting Challenge, a performance from The Dance Academy and a dog show.

The local pub, The Fighting Cocks, also held its annual beer festival, with food, drinks and a live band playing.

At the fair, David Wilson Homes hosted a stall to inform house-hunters about Pastures Place, which now has show homes available for prospective homebuyers to view and tour.

Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said:

“Ever since we began to build new homes in the tight-knit community of Corby Glen, we have seen it as our duty to give back to the community wherever we can.

“Corby Glen Sheep Fair is one of the most unique and wonderful events I have ever seen organised by a local community, and it was a pleasure to be able to have David Wilson Homes representatives attend the event on the Sunday to provide information and goodie bags to visitors.

“Our Sales Advisers had a great time mixing with other local businesses and performing groups on the day, resulting in a fantastic weekend of fun for all involved.”
