There are many people who have been instrumental in getting the Trust to the current point, and we hope many more will get involved as time goes on.
At the moment there are some people we would particularly like to thank:
Everyone who has donated towards the purchase price of the land, big and small, all donations have ben greatly appreciated
The Fairfield Trust, for their very generous grant of £15,000
James Mudie, an invaluable help with the application to the Charity Commision. When we eventually get charitable status, as we are sure we will, it will be thanks to him and his experience, help and advice.
Simon Breeze, County Ecologist, for coming to see the land and writing a very informative ecological report on it
Charlie Field at SCC, who has agreed to sell the land to the Trust and has provided a letter of intent to sell to give us certainty
All the trustees for their input and anticipated input! A special mention to Catherine and Alan, who braved Taunton during the lock-down to set up our bank account and particularly to Alan for taking control of the account.
