Greensand Country

Supporting The Annual Greensand Country Festival 2021

As proud festival sponsors of the Annual Greensand Country Festival, we are committed to building much-needed homes in Bedfordshire, providing local property seekers with a range of luxurious homes in thriving new communities.

Our award-winning approach to developments is based on enhancing locations whilst using the most sustainable options for building. Gardens, communal spaces, landscaping and electric car charging ports are all considered in the design process.

We are delighted to have teamed up with Greensand Country, an organisation that shares our values in protecting the environment whilst addressing the evolving needs of local communities and businesses.

Kerry Jones, Sales Director at Mulberry Homes, said: “We’re very proud to be a part of this wonderful festival. The Greensand Country is a stunning landscape, and we’re looking forward to seeing local communities safely come together to enjoy this natural beauty.”

The Annual Greensand Country Festival

We are incredibly lucky to have the wonderful Greensand Country Landscape on our doorstep in Bedfordshire. Greensand Country is a beautiful and well-loved landscape defined by the Greensand Ridge, a band of higher ground stretching from Leighton Buzzard to Gamlingay, which rises out of the surrounding vales to create a locally unique environment. The area is home to all of Bedfordshire’s remaining heathland, more than half of its woodland and 29 historical parklands.

It’s an amazing landscape which, as well as being an area of diverse natural beauty, provides prosperity, wellbeing, heritage and inspiration to the communities living in and around it. To ensure this natural amenity is preserved, it must benefit the local community, both now and for future generations.

The Greensand Country Festival is organised yearly so that we all can go out and enjoy the Landscape. The Greensand Country is there for us all year round however, during May we ask local businesses, councils, social groups, charities, etc. to organise a diverse range of inclusive and fun activities across the landscape.

Taking place across the landscape, from Leighton Buzzard to Gamlingay, throughout May, the festival is a celebration of the distinct, beautiful and loved Greensand Country, and helps to encourage those living within the area to get out and explore the outstanding countryside on their doorstep. The festival will showcase a diverse and exciting programme of events and activities, with something to suit every interest.

Greensand Country’s values align perfectly with our own, as we’re both focused on protecting the environment whilst address the evolving needs of local communities and businesses.

At Mulberry Homes, our award-winning approach to developments is based on enhancing locations whilst using the most sustainable options for building. As part of our industry-leading ‘The Mulberry Way’ initiative, gardens, communal spaces, landscaping and electric car charging ports are all considered in the design process. The initiative promotes environmental positivity whilst adding to the community’s sense of wellbeing.

Throughout 2020, we ran our Distinctly Local campaign, which operated in a similar way to Greensand Country’s festival by supporting local businesses, social groups and charities. Every month, we donated to two organisations nearby to our developments and awarded two of our residents with £200 worth of vouchers for local businesses, such as cafés, farm shops, florists, butchers and bakeries.
