Grand opening of our new water treatment plant!

The sun shone and the birds sang as an eager group of supporters gathered to watch the ribbon being cut across our new water treatment plant. Now happily ensconced and providing an environmentally friendly and efficient management system for our waste.

Wielding the golden scissors, our long serving and beloved course leader, Richard Jackson overseen by the keen eye of one of our trustees, Eliza Talman.

With a flourish the ribbon was cut, the crowd gave a rousing cheer and the new system was officially declared open!

All thanks to the support of our wonderful donors to the Digging Deep for Jackdaws campaign, without whom we would not have been able to carry out this work without severely affecting our other output.

Thank you all so much!

If you were considering making a donation it is not too late! We would still be very grateful as there is a continuing programme of upgrades to the site that we need to undertake and which we know you will enjoy the benefits of when you come to visit, alongside the new tank of course. These currently include work to the windows and external walls, repointing the rose garden wall, new carpet in the downstairs house studio and some internal decoration.
