If you are interested in becoming more involved with the scheme we are looking for new committee members as well as always needing volunteers.

Opening times:

The main gate giving vehicle access is open every Saturday 10 am - 1pm ( weather permitting)

A pedestrian gate allows wheelbarrow access at all other times.
