Another reminder to all of you at a loose end this coming Monday. We have the Hardgraft Theatre company coming to Fordhall on Monday 8th May at 7.30pm.
This comprises of two comedy actors Mark Whiteley and Dan Hoffmann-Gill. On the 1st May they have embarked upon their most adventurous project so far. They are walking from North Wales to the Lincolnshire coast performing each evening in a new venue.
To make it even tougher, they have no money, nowhere to sleep and no idea where their adventures will take them!
Join them on this amazing journey at Fordhall Farm, Market Drayton on Monday.... if they make it this far....
The evening and company is free although donations will be welcomed for Mark and Dan as they continue on their journey - I am not too sure if they know where they are going after Fordhall, so they well be looking for a venue near you?
We have so far raised £205,000 and have 1402 shareholders from across the country. It is building everyday and the momentum is still up from the Telegraph article over Easter.
We need to keep this momentum going if we are going to reach our £800,000 target by July 1st; we welcome your help. If you would like to help the campaign by putting up a poster, or by placing leaflets in your veg box scheme or community newsletter please do let us know and we can post them out to you.
This is our one and only chance to put Fordhall Farm into community ownership for the benefit of future generations. After being chemical free for over 65 years and with containing a Scheduled Norman Motte and Bailey on site, the farm has to be saved.
Our business plan is now complete with the skilled help of Ron Makins from Strategia Consulting. This has already been taken to Triodos who seem very keen on the idea, and other banks are being approached. However, the more we can raise through community involvement the higher our chances of success. This is what will really make Fordhall stand out from the rest, and is what puts farmland back into your hands.
