The Biblins Management Committee are excited by early funding success – after only 6 weeks since picking up the keys to the youth campsite the committee have been successful in their first funding application.
Central England Co-operative Society have very generously awarded £1,000 towards catering equipment for The Burrow. The equipment will increase access to the campsite, enabling those groups without their own equipment to visit.
The Burrow is a unique building, built into the hillside and with a retractable roof to allow the sunshine in or evening star gazing whilst experiencing the comfort and warmth of a log-burning stove and bunkbeds.
Woodcraft Folk volunteer Melissa March, who supported the application said “I am really pleased that this funding will enable more children and young people to experience nature and learn about the environment at the Biblins site”. The funds have enabled the purchase of a water urn, gas cookers and necessary safety equipment.
The Burrow has also benefited from donations of equipment from Coventry Woodcraft Folk and Leighton & Linslade Woodcraft Folk.
