Greg opens new Community Woodland at Pepenbury

Greg was delighted to officially open Pepenbury's Woodland Community Project at the Pepenbury Fun Day.

Pepenbury is a charity which supports adults with a learning disability who may also have complex needs, a physical disability, autism or behaviour which challenges.

Greg said:

"The woodland project makes it possible for residents and visitors to come and enjoy with each other this spectacular place in Kent, to get to know each other and to break down the barriers that sometimes exist if you don't get a chance to have a chat and to meet each other.

"It's also wonderful that people in wheelchairs can get right into the heart of the woodland."

The charity's main site is based on an idyllic 100 acres of land in Cornford Lane, Pembury, but until now the woods and fields were inaccessible to wheelchairs and children's buggies. As a result of a £60,000 grant from SITA Trust, the existing path has been upgraded so that people in wheelchairs can use it. There is also a fantastic new woodland trail in the woods with sensory musical instruments, new picnic facilities and illustrated signs depicting the local animals, birds and plants.
