The Haven – Newsletter – August 2021

Welcome to our fifth newsletter.

It has been quiet on The Haven over summer, and the grass has grown high; but I think we all needed some time and space to reflect on the past 18 months and to adapt to moving forward at our own pace.

I just have a few updates to share this month.

Two of these fabulous wheelchair accessible raised beds are on order and should be with us soon.

Now that Chapter have secured a good amount of money for new accessible pathways at The Haven we are looking for a contractor to deliver your ideas.
And finally, a noticeboard will be delivered soon which was very kindly funded by Cllr Mike Edwardson.
