About this cause
Our purpose is to care for the environment and create community. We have done this for 11 years by transforming a derelict pond arena into a multi-award-winning site which has seen increasing footfall every year. We also recently raised £36,000 to transform a dangerous and unusable toddlers' play area into a new facility. Then, after a ten-year battle, we won control of 18.7 acres of woodland.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We have been building a strong community, both for residents and visitors, over the past 11 years. During Covid-19, we had 18 volunteers available to help residents. The pond is a magnet for isolated, lonely and mentally stressed volunteers who find gardening and viewing the wildlife helpful for mind and body. Our annual events reach many people.
