THE ST WENN COMMUNITY PROJECT WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE ST WENN WI FOR THEIR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THE GARDEN SHOW. 

The St Wenn Community Project is now a registered charity. The aim of the Charity is to maintain the Village Hall, a very important asset for the local community.  We are also raising money to purchase the School Field for the Parish of St Wenn, to protect it from development in the future and secure its use for the Village School.  Apart from all our Fund Raising efforts we have been given grants by WREN (Windmill Money), Denzil Downs Fund and also the National Lottery.  A final push this summer with a Grand Midsummer Ball and Family Day over the weekend of 22-23 June 2019 should see us achieve our goal of £36,000 to purchase the School Field.  Here’s hoping we can make an announcement to this effect at the Garden Show in August.
