The Saturday May 4th table sale at Knighton Community Centre raised a total of £327, partly to help with the centre’s running costs, while £130 is being given to the Teme Valley Environmental Group to support the organisation’s “Edible Knighton” project. This project has already planted 23 fruit and nut trees around the town and is hoping to work with other groups to extend the scheme. If you are interested in joining in this exciting enterprise phone 01547 528833.
As part of this project, TVEG has very recently replaced the old fencing to the rear of the Community Centre with espaliered apple and pear trees and the group is now working on establishing a herb garden outside the centre’s smaller functions venue, the Reynolds Room. The £130 represents a big thank you to TVEG from the centre’s management committee and will assist with funding the next phase of the “Edible Knighton” project. The money was presented by Karen Plant and Ann Dodd, Chairperson and Secretary of the Community Centre Management Committee, to Anne Mary Davies of TVEG when they met up today at the site for the herb garden.
