We were delighted to have a visit from David Heath over half term. His clear enthusiasm for the project was a boost at this difficult time waiting for our planning application to go in.

The Western Gazette reported on the visit. Here is a link to the article.

Peter has also been to a meeting with Nick Hurd through the Directory of Social Change in London on 27th October. We were invited by Jay Kennedy, Head of Policy at DSC after I wrote to Nick Hurd as Minister for Civil Society. Jay Kennedy said,

“I was struck by your example of the planning regulations inhibiting your work with children in woodlands, it’s a unique one compared to many of the other things that have been submitted, but a perfect illustration of the kind of thing that needlessly gets in the way.”
