Buy a Personalised Tile for the Whistlewood Roundhouse Floor


The Whistlewood Roundhouse is a new building sited in a community-owned woodland in south Derbyshire. It will have a beautiful tile floor with bespoke tiles designed by Andy Mason, talented local potter and Whistlewood member. Each tile will have native leaf species, laid directly under the roof lantern, casting light onto this beautiful feature.
 
Personalised tiles are available for purchase to help fund the project. Your initials will be engraved into the front of the tile, so that you can leave a lasting legacy that you can come and visit for years to come. You can buy tiles for all your family and as gifts for other people. Just £8 per tile or £30 for a family of four. The floor will be laid in September 2018. 

Serpentine Farm in Buxton Gets Reprieve from Eviction


A community-owned growing space and garden which was under threat of eviction from the council which owned its land has been given a reprieve. The volunteers running Serpentine Farm have spent the last year fighting the possibility of eviction by High Peak Borough Council who wanted to sell the land for development. Now they have been given a lease until at least December 2019 and begun looking into the possibility of raising funds to buy the land as a group.
 
The farm, which has links with nurseries, schools, a local college and university, plus mental health services and JobCentre Plus, is always welcoming new volunteers.
