It's been some time since we ran our fundraising project to raise money for the dell, which closed for donations in October. For various reasons, the project went into hibernation over the winter months. But the good news is that plans are in motion for starting work on the improvements in the spring and summer terms. Because we raised a whopping total of £1,417, we are able to be more ambitious in our plans for this wonderful space. Thanks you again to everyone for their generous donations and support!

 

Current plans for renovations and improvements:

  • Clear and resurface the paths around the dell
  • Work with the Wychwood project (a local nature conservancy project) to 'rewild' the dell with native species of plants (attracting insects and animals).
  • Construct a hazel bird hide
  • Build an ambitious new shelter to be used as an 'outdoor classroom'

We are hoping that the work will start next term, but in the meantime, we are currently taking offers of help. If anyone can donate their time or expertise, please contact dell@towerhillschool.org.uk outlining what you can offer. For instance, we need people to help with planting and weeding, and helping with the resurfacing. We will keep all volunteers' names on a database and contact you nearer the time. If anyone has experience designing and building outdoor structures, we would be especially pleased to hear from you!

 

Other plans

As we mentioned in the original campaign, we are also in the process of arranging for names of donors to be displayed a plaque to be displayed on the dell. Thank you again to donors. You will soon have the recognition you so richly deserve.

 

 

A huge ‘thank you’ to all of our generous sponsors!
