Rowdeford School and the community of Rowde, Wiltshire is today celebrating the news that The Rowdeford Charity Trust has received a £15,000 funding boost from The Hills Group Limited and Touchstone Residential for our Outdoor Learning Project. This money was made available through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) which is administered for Hills by Community First, the Rural Community Council for Wiltshire.
‘This generous funding from the Hills Group allows us to start work in providing access into the woodland where we want to build our Outdoor Learning Centre. This will complete the first stage works that will open up the area. Once this initial work is complete this will allow the land to be used by the children even before the building works start.’ Jonathan Grew Chairman of the Rowdeford Charity Trust
Rowdeford School in Rowde near Devizes, is a school for pupils with complex learning difficulties, and the Rowdeford Charity Trust is to restore and extend the old kennels within the woodland adjoining the school providing an innovative outdoor learning space. Additional to the new funding other fundraising has already started, building on the annual activities of the Trust, and planning permissions have already been granted.
