Recent Updates and upcoming AGM

Hello folks,

Just a few updates and a reminder about our next meeting (our first Annual General Meeting).

  • On September 3rd we had a great training day, building design workshop and skillshare at Bridgend allotments. Thanks to all who took part and attended and for everyones efforts, energy and enthusiasm. There is a report on the event if you follow this link (couldn't find a way to attach it):
  • The following day we found out we had managed to reach our fundraising target £500! This was amazing news and has been able to fund the essential EnviroReport needed on the land of the farmhouse which identified 'no evidence manifest on the building of significant foundation problems' and secure below ground issues. Thanks again to all the financial support shown from all for this. It was a huge effort to do in one month and we just did it in time. Amazing!
  • We have received some funding from the Neighbourhood Partnership which is to help towards further engagement with others in the area on the possible farmhouse renovation and on creating educational opportunities as part of this process. This may include oral history, storytelling, an exhibition or book on Bridgend and a youth event. If you would like to help with the organisation and carrying out on any of these please get in touch.
  • We will be having out next general meeting on Monday october 3rd 6.30-8.30pm at Inch Community Centre. This will be our AGM so anyone can be nominated to have an official position on the organisations board and to bring up any particular issues, concerns or suggestions for the next year. Please come along if you would like.
  • We are in the process of putting a website together which should be here in the next few months and hopefully have all the information up there in a much more accessible way than the blog.
We look forward to hearing from and seeing you soon, and if there are any ways you would like to get involved do get in touch -
