Catterick community project gets funding for polytunnel

Funding has been announced for a community polytunnel at Bramble Woods in Catterick Garrison.

Once up and running, 70 planters in the polytunnel will be available for hire by the local community with 30 managed by volunteers at the site, run by the e50K charity.

Amy Manuel, manager at Bramble Woods, said they would provide training, guidance, and support to everyone involved in the polytunnel and surrounding community allotments.

“It is a testament to the amazing work that is going on at Bramble Woods.

“Four years ago, it was a rundown bit of Crown Estate and now it is a bustling community woodland and allotment site with a pond, frogs and beehives to boot!

“Partnering closely with the Catterick community, the team have worked tirelessly to build a community place that is welcoming and engaging delivering the core value pillars of e50K and is truly an example of social value in action. Bramble Woods is the living embodiment of what can be achieved as a result of committed and determined people seeking to do good within the community.”

Two two community volunteer days will be held on June 6 and 7 to prepare the polytunnel ready for opening.

Amy added: “We are also opening both headline sponsorship and individual planter sponsorship starting at only £100 to help us support and expand this project long term.”
