A new name was sought from the community following its acquisition by Wyevale Garden Centres in January this year.? The other two naming options were Banovallum and Horncastle.

Speaking of the new name, Mayor Birchall said: ?It was fantastic to be a part of the unveiling of Wolds View, today. The initiative is a leading example of community spirit that is ever-present in?Horncastle. It is clear from the number of people present, and the buzz around the voting, that?the centre is a pillar of the community.?

Ken Dawson said: ?We are so pleased to share our new name, Wolds View with the community. The number of voters – 2,000 – confirms the special place our centre has in Horncastle and beyond.

?It was fantastic to see everyone get behind the initiative and we?re very happy with the result. It?s a name that we believe strongly reflects our community surroundings. We hope to see everyone at Wolds View this weekend to check out the ?view? for themselves, and enjoy free, family fun to celebrate, which is our way of saying thank you for your support.?
