We are lucky to have been selected to be in the customer vote for a Bags of Help grant from Tesco Midlands Supermarket. It’s a scheme which gives community projects like ours grants of up to £4,000 – all raised from the sale of carrier bags in Tesco stores. You now have the opportunity to vote in store during January and February on who should receive the awards. Please support us in your local store! Any award received will go towards creating a series of family activity walks in the Ironbridge Gorge. www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp

Christmas Wreath Workshop

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…….
We had a fantastic workshop on Saturday 1st December creating Christmas wreaths from natural foliage. Many thanks to Craig for leading the day and to all the attendees. You created some beautiful wreaths and they were all so different. There will be lots of front doors that will be the envy of your neighbours. Looking forward to next Christmas to do it all again!!
