This year continues to be a wild ride!
I want to update you on the progress of Kids Village. Despite the challenges over the last 12 months, we’ve made great progress towards building Kids Village in the not-too-distant future.
As you may know, we have a fantastic site that we’re working on & we’re approaching planning and building in a detailed and sensitive way. We’ve made great local contacts and are working with experienced and expert advisors. We’ve jumped many hurdles already and have now completed all of the necessary land studies, including Great Crested Newt surveys! As any of you who have gaining planning permission before will know, it’s a long and sometimes difficult process but we’re getting close to the end now!
We intend to welcome children & their families to Kids Village late 2022/ early 2023.
We also managed to raise nearly £100,000 over the last 12 months, which we’re very proud of given the circumstances.
Moving forward, we’ve decided to postpone our Big Ball of Courage which was planned for October 9th this year. I’ll keep you updated with new plans for 2022, where we plan to celebrate fully approved planning permission with you. We will have other smaller fundraising events this year and would love your support, ideas and suggestions.

Sending love & hope
