As the lockdown restrictions started to ease we started to look at ways to transform our community space with young people and this was the start of a truly inspiring partnership with businesses led by Ian Short, our Chair of Trustees. Together we moved our café space, developed our peace and games room, enhanced the educational facilities for Restore and started replacing outdated doors/windows to bigger and better energy efficient ones. We also built our amazing roof terrace alongside our conference room! The work was carried out by professional trades people and our volunteers.
We also started the development of our ‘Grow Together’ project focused more on the horticulture aspect of our Educational Farm. We constructed poly tunnels and raised vegetable beds.
Later in 2021, we had a special visit from His Royal Highness Prince William, The Prince of Wales who presented our volunteers with the Queens Award for Voluntary Service. A truly momentous occasion!
