Edward Parker has big plans for the Springhead Trust in Fontmell Magna.

The environmental education and sustainability centre has been successful with several recent grant awards. Edward says this support has been vital during the lockdown.

Funding has allowed his staff to continue maintaining the grounds and gardens and they have had time to devise future projects. One of these plans aims to bring new life to one of the established orchards on the 15-acre site. More sustainable food production is planned, too.

The Springhead team is about to launch a survey to find out what locals want from the popular event and community venue.
