Bearwood Associates Ltd completed a Phase 1 Ecology Survey for Morgan's Field in October 2015. You can read the full report here.

We have been astonished. We now have evidence that there is strong community support for our Heart project: over 200 questionnaires returned with over 80% in support of a new shop, cafe and green space at Morgan's field; more excitingly, 10 applications have been received for the new Loan Stock Offer with the full £15,000 already pledged! Amazing. Thank you to everyone who is taking the the time and effort to be involved with our new Heart.

Today we launch a new initiative that will give local people the opportunity to be part of critical 'building blocks' for our new Heart. We need to raise £15,000 to buy the lease on Morgan's Field, pay for a detailed ecology study and apply for planning. To raise the funds, we are offering Heart Loan Stock for a minimum investment of £500. The investment will be paid back from 2019 and is eligible for Social Investment Tax Relief. Applications for the Loan Stock can be made before October 31st. For detailed information take a look at our Loan Stock Offer document or contact any of the Heart team members  

Over 150 questionnaires have come back to us now. Hoping for lots more over the next couple of weeks. Please help by reminding friends, family or collegues to complete theirs. Many thanks. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VYKSBWZ
