Although the project is still in development the group has already acquired some furniture. A spokesperson for the project said: “We have acquired the sturdy garden seating from the old Camus House site and these benches will be installed shortly.

“A quote is pending for some basic work on the old ‘Janny’s hut’ so that we can make use of that. We have had volunteer help to maintain and tidy our splendid lime trees and the same volunteers are poised to start grass-cutting as soon as necessary.”
