Vital repairs are needed for the Environment Centre, which has had a lot of wear and tear since it opened in 2000. The Centre acts as an educational resource, a visitors’ centre for the nature reserve and a community hub, often receiving 150 visitors in a week from varied groups including volunteers and school children.
We are in need of funds to for example repair broken shutters, replace our ageing PV solar panels and install a new compost toilet. Any donations are welcome, thank you!
Our funding target is £20,000 and as of February 2017 we have raised £7,715 through donations, fundraising events and a £2,500 grant from the Guildhall Ward which will go towards replacing decking around the pond and the pond dipping platform – needed for our summer holiday activities. Many thanks to those who have contributed so far!
