History and Restoration Plans

Read the notice by the entrance, a transcript of which is provided on this site.

Learn about plans for restoration from transcript of extract from paper available outlining current plans and progress.

The Group are busy applying for funding to expand all their activities, most particularly those around healthy eating/education.  If you are involved with a school and think we could provide an outdoor and fun activity, do get in touch.  We are a friendly crowd with volunteers from all age groups and welcome anyone who wants to get involved.  You don't have to make a regular commitment (though we love it if you can) nor do you have to do loads of heavy-duty digging (though think of the benefit to those stomach muscles).  There are all sorts of tasks to be done, both in the garden and organisationally.
