We are delighted and beyond grateful to say that the £100,000 goal has been hit, and the Town Council made the unanimous decision on 26th February 2024 to pursue the purchase of Longspring Woods, for the use of the community for generations to come.

This is matched by a further £100,000 from the Town Council's Capital Projects fund.
