Fencing NE Corner – Stage 7

Regular readers will know that we have a project under way at the moment to repair and replace fences at the North East corner of the Craven Arms Community Garden – as described in an earlier post.

The photograph below shows further progress with the fencing – the installation of barbed wire at the top of the new fence on Thursday 23rd May 2019.

The top of the fence features barbed wire and inside the fence there are Blackthorn and Hawthorn trees. When these have grown they will add to the deterrent and hopefully reduce theft and vandalism.

We have also added vertical extensions to the gate at the north east corner making this very difficult to climb over, as shown in the photograph below. In due course a combination lock will be provided so that plot-holders can gain secure access.

The gate will be unlocked whenever the Discovery Centre is open – so that visitors can walk through the Community Garden.

We are very grateful to Euro Quality Foundation who kindly provided the funds to allow this project to be carried out.
