Love Our Village
The villagers of Lover are looking for love this Valentine’s Day and we hope you are the perfect match.
Once a thriving, bustling village with a famous post office, pub and primary school we are now a village looking to bring back the glories of old by seeking your help to lavish it with TLC.
This year marks 10 years since the school shut down and today we are on an exciting mission - to raise £110,000 to save the school from commercial development and create a brand new community centre becoming a home for the Lover pre-school, a centre of fitness and a venue for creativity & celebrations.
Once open, the centre will also be at the heart of the Lover Post Office re-launch, enabling people to send their valentine a card from this famous village. We have 12 months to prepare to put the most famous and romantic venue in the world back on the map and open for Valentine’s Day 2017.
Like many villages up and down the country, we are passionate about keeping our village heart beating and are working hard to raise the money but we are looking for more people to help us reach our target. Every penny and pound donated will be put towards the costs of materials and labour for renovation to begin.
All donations will be collected by the registered charity 'Lover Community Trust' (charity number: 1164291)
If you want to be part of our love story then please donate what you can. You will be forever in our hearts.
If you want to make a love declaration please donate whatever you can afford.
It paid off too - we had over £300 of donations in 1 day.
Let's hope more people show their love for our little village. xx
Fantastic day - I love the pictures. Amazing to see such support from everyone who came with their loved ones to be in the 'Heart of Lover' photo.
