West Town Community Trust .. January 2016 Update!
Happy new year and apologies for being so quiet over the festive season. Over the last month or so we have been in ongoing talks with the Church Commissioners who have now advised us that they have no urgent need to sell West Town Farm this spring and as such will not be selling to West Town Farm Community Trust. The conversation is ongoing between Andy Bragg and the Church. Andy’s tenancy is secure and West Town Farm will continue to offer a wide range of education and community engagement in conjunction with organicARTS.
West Town Farm Community Trust, which has been registered as a Charitable Community Benefit Society, will continue to exist, albeit in a dormant capacity for the immediate future.
The outpouring of love and support from all of you has overwhelmed us all from the very beginning. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who’s volunteered their time and support, even if it was just to listen to us talk.
We will be continuing to host monthly farm walks so stay tuned for future updates and keep an eye on the website and our newsletters. Please direct any questions to Andy
