Opening of the Loaning Path 2024

The Official Opening of our Loaning Path: 20 April 2024

In the Autumn of 2023 work began on our path that leads from the Ark down to the Loaning.

The Group are really grateful for the funding from The National Lottery Community fund to make the Loaning more accessible to everyone.

Now we have access via the path down to our wonderful Orchard and we also have six information boards telling you all about the habit and biodiversity in the Loaning. Due to the weather- we postponed our official opening to the Spring- and we gathered together with members and friends of WEG in April- you can see some highlights below 🙂 including our lovely cake designed especially for us

We’d encourage everyone to visit and enjoy the space and look forward to welcoming you to the Orchard, Wildflower area and Sensory Garden.  If you have any questions, contact a member of the group here

A big thank you to all the members and friends who support the upkeep of this great community space!
