5:05pm Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in News
WROUGHTON Parish Council have raised half the funds needed to buy Kings Wood Farm and are calling on residents for a final push.
The council needs to raise £30,000 by March 2014 to save the wood after fundraising for the site since April this year.
Jane Lane, who organised an open meeting about the project last month, said: “The saving of Kings Farm Wood for Wroughton to use and enjoy is to be applauded and the people of the village should support the Parish Council to raise the money required.”
The council are now asking residents to continue to support the project and help raise the final half of funds.
Coun Paul Hurst, Chair of Wroughton Parish Council, said: “Thank you to all the people that have already made donations towards this appeal. We now need a final push to raise the remaining amount. To help with this, I will be hosting a quiz nights around Wroughton and more information about entering a team can be obtained from the Parish Office.”
