New Pond Shelter

We recently received a grant of £2,000 from the People’s Postcode Lottery to fund the installation of a shelter beside our on-site pond.

The wooden structure, which was designed and built by a local carpenter, provides shade in summer and shelter from the elements for groups doing pond dipping activities.

Equipped with storage benches to hold trays, the children are able to identify what they have caught from our pond life guides.

We would like to thank all who supported us in completing this project – and particularly the players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Funding News

Having been shortlisted by Persimmons Homes in October 2020 within 96 selected projects, we secured £1,000 plus an additional £5,000 in November from their Building Futures Fund.

We are delighted as this money gives us a start towards our rough campsite project. Our thanks to all who voted for us last year!

Co-op Local Community Fund scheme

We are delighted to announce that customers of the Co-op have raised £1,111.57 to support us in funding a wooden gazebo for shelter outside. Once we have raised further funds we will be able to begin this project.

Our grateful thanks for all those who supported us by donating in this scheme!
