Vision and Projects
Phase 1 Site Improvements
In March 2020, we secured a grant from the Big Lottery Fund to meet the costs of site enclosure, site surveys and the creation of a new access with a temporary vehicle hard-standing area. In November 2020, a further grant was secured from the Postcode Lottery Fund to install a circulatory footpath around the large fishing pond in the main field. Further funding is required to carry out additional improvements including a sensory trail, wildlife stations as well as hedge, shrub and tree planting.
Phase 2 Site Improvements
In due course, the Charity will be applying for a further grant from the Big Lottery Fund to build a community lodge for recreation, wildlife and wellness as well as safe access for visitors to the Duck Pond. There will be fund raising and other grant applications to achieve our overall vision including additional walkways, informal recreation areas, and wildlife gardens.
