Urgent Appeal: We need your help NOW to support Barracks Lane Community Garden - Help us relight our fire and buy a new stove!

 The wood burning stove in the cabin at the garden has suddenly reached the end of its life and sadly can no longer be used.  We would like to replace it as soon as possible to provide invaluable heating in the cabin for all our community groups and individual hirers at this chilly time of year. The stove is an integral part of the garden not only providing heat but also that warm and friendly atmosphere that the garden radiates to all who use it. 

Please read the full story and how to donate here:
