New community notice board thanks to Greif UK Ltd

Friday, 27th March 2015

Thanks to apprentices at Greif UK’s HQ in Ellesmere Port, we now have a brand new community notice board. So if you want to know what is coming up at Mill Lane farm, you can find out there!

Greif has been a supporter of Bridge Community Farms from the very beginning. Last year the company’s charitable trust made a very generous donation of £36,000 to help us get started.

Francis Ball, Chairman of Bridge Community Farms said: “Greif’s ongoing support is invaluable and we are enormously grateful to them for continuing to offer their time and resources to get the farm up and running.”

The community notice board is located at the entrance to the farm site at Mill Lane so keep your eye on it for forthcoming events and other opportunities that you can get involved in.

Thanks to URENCO!
