For nearly 2 years we have wanted to created an outdoor space at the Lighthouse next to the bubbling Wince Brook that passes the back of the mill. Today that dream moved a little bit closer as we started to erect a new fence along the bank of the river.
The back of the mill is the best part of the building for catching the sun and our desire is to create a multi-purpose outdoor space that would include an informal seating area, some raised bed planters for flowers and perhaps a sensory area, and also a space for growing vegetables in a poly-tunnel or greenhouse.
One of the barriers to this dream has been the fact that there was no fencing along the edge of the river to stop people falling in! Through a generous donation of some white upvc fencing we are now able to change this and hopefully we will be able to bring the space into use for this summer.
If you would like to help us with any aspect of the work, or if you are interested in gardening or growing, then get in touch and see how you can get involved.
