OUR NEWS AND EVENTS BLOG
On Friday, the people who live at Keeper’s Cottage in Ledbury were presented with a set of electronic tablets by Councillor Annette Crowe which were purchased with money raised during her time as Ledbury’s Mayor when she selected Salter’s Hill as one of her chosen charities . Each person who lives at Keeper’s Cottage will now have their own electronic tablet which they can use to go online and communicate with friends and family and there is also one for staff use.
We would like to thank Annette for all of her support over the past year and the huge amount of effort she and her supporters have put in to organising various charitable fundraising events. Thank-you!

Recently a small team at Salter’s Hill Barn including Matt, Graham and Gavin have been busy building a new and improved chicken run for our lovely hens. For the past two weeks poles have slowly been planted in the earth and we are now watching the wire for the run being stretched and secured in between them.
The building of the chicken run had been made possible by a generous donation from one of our supporters, thank-you so much! #LDWeek16.

Recently we re-designed our volunteer leaflets to include our updated logo and information about how people can get involved in supporting the work that we do. These were printed by StarPrint, a social enterprise printing service offered by The National Star College. These leaflets will be available at different events we are attending throughout the year.
We would like to say a big thank-you for the StarPrint’s professional service, we are really pleased with the finished product!

This morning we held an open morning at Pound Farm to celebrate Learning Disability Awareness week 2016. This was a chance for people to come and have a catch up and see what we do at Salter’s Hill. Throughout the morning a wide selection of cakes were made available along with teas and coffees. It was great to see so many familiar faces, and one or two new ones.
