CPRE grant 2019-20
Hogacre won £5000 for exciting new projects on site, in collaboration with Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE):
– improving access, including a wheelchair-accessible toilet in the Pavilion and a ramp into the Pavilion (before we start lobbying Network Rail again for ramped access on the bridge to the site – watch this space);
– information boards and seating across the site;
– trees to replace those lost to Ash-dieback, including food-producing trees and bushes to start a Forest garden;
– courses and teaching sessions. Community scything was held in June. Hedge-laying was held in December last year (see pictures below).
