OUR NEWS AND EVENTS BLOG
We have been successful in being chosen as one of the 3 charities in Ledbury that will receive funds from the new Co-op Community Fund. The scheme raises funds from the monies that are raised from the “Bag charges” in store at Ledbury and also Co-op membership card holders that are registered at Ledbury stores. There are new Membership cards being issued at the moment to existing members across the Co-op which allow you to be part of the community fund raising. If you are a Ledbury cardholder, please look out for your card if you hold one and make sure that you consider registering to support us.
With the money raised we would like to improve the access to our site on Falcon Lane in Ledbury, adding and improving pathways and sheltered seating to allow everyone who uses our facilities to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside we are based in.
Recently Bob’s bike was unveiled in the memory of Bob Lane a former resident at Pound Farm in Gorsley. Bob died in December 2015 and is sadly missed.
We have unveiled the motorbike as an additional seat in the gardens at Pound Farm for Bob’s friends to sit on and use. This would have made Bob smile to think of a motorbike being in the garden.
We have vacancies on our Creative Learning courses which take place at Salter’s Hill Barn on Falcon Lane nr. Ledbury and Pound Farm in Gorsley.

At Salter’s Hill Charity we are bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.
Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.
Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 31st October to 13th November 2016 on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.
Three groups in each of Tesco’s 416 regions have been shortlisted to receive the cash award. We are one of the groups on the shortlist!
On Wednesday 7th September between 10am and 12 noon we will be holding a recruitment event at Costa Coffee in Ross-on-Wye (13 Market Place, HR9 5NU).

On Sunday 21st August we held a Summer get-together for staff at Salter’s Hill and their families, volunteers and people we support at Court Farm Barn in Aylton. Everyone was asked to bring cakes and sandwiches to share along with teas and coffee. The afternoon started off in the sunshine and although it got a little bit wet towards the end it didn’t dampen everyone’s spirits.
Thanks go to everyone who could make the get-together and who brought such a lovely selection of food, there was plenty to go around! Thanks also go to Rebecca and Ian Jones at Court Farm Aylton for providing such a lovely venue and their on-going support of Salter’s Hill this year.
