Outdoor Classroom

Outdoor Classroom

To help make our grounds more accessible to the children all-year round, we’d now like to add an outdoor classroom to provide a working base for activities in the Woodland Walk.  In addition to all the current opportunities, a fully-enclosed classroom would also enable classes to spend a whole day based in the grounds.

We estimate that this project will cost in the region of £30,000 and have already begun applying for grants but will also need to raise a large part of the funds ourselves.  For Phase 1, we need approximately £17,000 for a cedar classroom and base, with a renewable energy pack, rainwater collection, electricity and a toilet to be added as funding is available. 

Grow £1 Challenge

A huge thank you to all who joined in with our Grow £1 fundraising, the children have managed to grow their £1s  to raise an amazing £5,500!  We’re awaiting a few more returns, have some offers of match funding, a grant and some Gift Aid reclaims to process and when all of this is added together, we’ll only be around £950 short of the amount we need to install both the concrete base and the cedar outdoor classroom for Phase 1.  This is tantalisingly close so please do return any outstanding £1 loans or funds raised, and it’s not too late if you’d like to make a donation or can persuade your place of work, local businesses or anyone else to donate!

The King Charles pub quiz team have kindly offered to donate the proceeds from their quiz night on Tuesday 19 March to our outdoor classroom fundraising.  The entry fee is £2 per person (teams of 4) and we’ll receive the fees so we’d love as many as possible to support this - more details at https://www.kingcharleswinchester.co.uk/whats-on
