Help boost nature reserve cash
3:59pm Thursday 2nd January 2014 in News
A SPECIAL meeting is being hosted for residents to hear the up-to-date news on how a project to safeguard Wroughton’s nature reserve for future generations is going.
The event, which focuses on Kings Farm Wood, is taking place at the Brown Jack Pub, on January 7 at 7pm.
The farm was rescued from potential development back in 2012 after parish councillors along with Swindon Council and Wiltshire Wildlife Trust teamed up to buy the £180,000 woodland.
The local authority and trust pledged £100,000 and £50,000 respectively towards the purchase of the grounds and even fronted the parish council the remaining £30,000.
And the villagers are now collecting cash to reimburse the council’s loan and have so far raised nearly £16,000.
With just until the end of March 2014 to raise a little over £13,000, activists and councillors are urging villagers to donate generously as they embark on one last fundraising drive.
To make a donation contact the parish office on 01793 814735 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
