The give-away was organised by master developer Urban & Civic in partnership with Sustrans, the sustainable transport charity.

Sustrans’ Middlebeck community engagement officer Sim Duhra teamed up with florist Lynne Earl-Pont, who supplied the wreaths as part of the launch of her new Newark store, A Little Flower Shop.

Johanne Thomas, of Urban & Civic, said: “Although Middlebeck is a new neighbourhood, we are very proud of its strong sense of community and it has been wonderful to see our residents support one another throughout this challenging year.

“Christmas is a time for expressing gratitude and spreading joy, so we wanted to say a special thank you to all of the families here for being such kind, caring and resilient neighbours.

“We also know that, now more than ever, it’s important to support local independent businesses and we are delighted to have partnered with Lynne to deliver these beautiful wreaths to Middlebeck homes.”

Lynne Earl-Pont, whose new shop is on Baldertongate, said: “With 30 years of floristry experience of creating contemporary and traditional designs in the Newark and Nottinghamshire area, I feel that now is the perfect time to start my new venture.”
