My last update was in October and since then, unfortunately there hasn’t been much to report. We have had the soil delivery at last, 80 tonnes dropped off on site for us to start shifting round however the drains are still NOT in!!
This is such a frustrating problem and the longer they are out the further this pushes us back and keeps us away from deadline day. They should finally be in this week and we can push on with all of the other jobs that need doing.
The trees from the woodland trust arrived this week and are ready and waiting to be planted. We have a total of 105 trees to be planted at the front of the site as part of the jubilee year and we were given them along side 2,000 other chosen community groups so its a real honour for us to be part of this.
I’m in process of making plans for another project to run along side what we are currently doing, The project is called A Meal A Week and the idea is to give low income families living below “The bread line” or homeless people in the town a free hot meal once a week, twice if possible.
I am in the process of seeking funding for a second polytunnel so that we can grow all of the vegetables needed for the project so that we don’t have to go and buy them or rely on funding each week to pay for them.
This will mean that we have a constant stream of food to make sure that we can feed everyone who needs help.
We are also in need of kitchen equipment to help fit out the kitchens so that we are able to cook all of the food for the families we also need plates, pans cups and cutlery. This is such an important project and we can help hundreds of people and help try to in some way reduce their food bill each month. The only way we can do this is through donations and people spreading the word and raising awareness of what we are doing.
If you can help with any of this pleas email me email@example.com
