Presentation to Southern Wiltshire Area Board

In May 2016 HHW representatives and supporters gave a presentation to the Wiltshire Council’s Southern Wiltshire Area Board to give an update on our Transformative Learning in Nature (TLiN) programme and submit a further capital grant bid for fire safety improvements.

Martin Plimsoll co-ordinator for the Alzheimer’s Society Men’s Group, and Jess Vorenburg, one of our TLiN volunteers, brought the experience of being in the wood to life for the Board and councillors were delighted to hear of our progress to date.

We are pleased to have been successful in securing a portion of the grant requested which will be ring-fenced for fire safety improvements in Hazel Hill Wood’s buildings such as enhanced smoke detection and this work will be a priority over the coming months.
