Grants 2021

Grant Awards in 2021

Enovert Community Trust - New Toilets

We are fortunate to have been awarded a grant from the Enovert Community Trust towards the cost of new toilets. 

The grant will pay for a prefabricated toilet unit, consisting of three unisex cubicles with integral washbasins, and a further cubicle with facilities for disabled visitors.

The unit arrives.

The unit sits on concrete pads which have been prepared by our team of Monday maintenance volunteers. It arrived in February and was winched into place.

Connection of the plumbing and electrics has been paid for by the Woodchester Mansion Trust. We had a small sum of money in our Cultural Recovery Grant in 2020 for landscaping of the unit, so it fits into the Park better. This work has also been carried out by our maintenance volunteers. It involved some rebuilding of the adjacent shelter which hides our unsightly rubbish bins!

We are grateful to Enovert for their help with this unglamorous but absolutely essential cost.
