    Tesco Bags of Help Funding Progress.

    On Thursday we were visited by Will and Bridget from Caves Folly Nurseries in Colwall who have been fantastic help in making our Sensory garden project come to life. Our initial ideas were captured by Rob Dudley  who helped us  to decide what areas were needed in the wellbeing garden to meet our  plans for the future. Once we know we had been awarded the funding from the Bags of Help Fund, Bridget and Will helped us to plan each areas to ensure we could achieve them with our funds. We are in the last stages of this now and should be finished by the end of the month.

    Dwarf Fruit trees have been ordered that will be delivered at the end of November and these will be planted along the long walk paths to make them easier to access. Watch this space for more news on the final stages of the Garden.

     

     

    Opening the Mop Fair in Ledbury.

    On the evening of Monday 9th October, some of the people who live at Keeper’s Cottage were invited by the Mayor of Ledbury to the opening of the town’s annual Mop Fair. Harriet was given the honour of cutting the ribbon alongside the Mayor and other representatives from the Ledbury community to declare the fair officially open, and everyone had a great time soaking up the atmosphere.

    Progress made on the Pizza Oven Project.

    Recently our Creative Learning groups welcomed Richard from the Ledbury Co-op store back to Falcon Lane in Ledbury to update him on the progress we have made with developing the area around our pizza oven.

    This was made possible with money which was awarded to us through the Co-op’s Local Community Fund.

    Invite for Keeper’s Cottage to the Civic Ceremony in Ledbury.

    On Sunday 1st October some of the people who live at Keeper’s Cottage were delighted to be invited to Ledbury’s annual Civic service on behalf of Ledbury’s Mayor Cllr. Elaine Fieldhouse. The service was held at St Michael’s and All Angels Church in Ledbury and this year’s theme was ‘Thankfulness’.

    The invitation to the Civic Ceremony follows from a visit from Cllr. Fieldhouse to Salters Hill in Ledbury at the beginning of September when she had the opportunity to visit some of our Creative Learning sessions and have a cup of tea at Keeper’s Cottage to discuss ideas for fundraising. We are really pleased to have been selected as Cllr. Fieldhouse’s chosen charity during her time as Mayor this year and we look forward to getting involved in more fundraising and events over the coming months.

    Thank-you!
