Now the hard work starts
Total cost of the project is in the region of £60,000 and with the pinch on public funding most of the cost will have to be from fund providers and donations. Both the Parish council and ourselves are making applications to this end but we will still need funding from the public and volunteers to help plant the trees etc. If you would like to make a donation t then click below
