Local water tower "Old Walter" is set to be demolished by developers to fulfil the planning obligations that are no longer beneficial. In order to do this, established woodland will be destroyed & woodland creatures evicted. Bunkers Hill plant nursery has offered to sponsor Old Walter & surrounding woodland in order to save them from this fate but this is not possible without your support.
We need your help to raise funds for legal costs to protect him and to fight for the lost benefits for the community. See Old Walter's amazing story on our website here!
The benefits of green spaces for wellbeing and mental health cannot be emphasised enough. It is for this reason that we include a crowdfunding option to raise additional funds beyond those needed to save Old Walter.
It is our family’s wish to be able to set up a charitable foundation to buy additional land locally (and further afield) to continue Humphrey & Walter's initiative of kindness & unity.
Together with your help this would allow us to create more wildflower meadows and woodlands for other communities to enjoy whilst also to prevent housing & industrial developments encroaching into the countryside.
We would like to work with conservation and mental health charities in a partnership whereby they can get involved with the planting and maintenance. We feel this would be of great benefit to those that sadly are suffering with depression or other mental health difficulties, bringing hope for a brighter future.
We have also have an online petition you can sign to help us to save Old Walter - here
Thank you for your support!
Andrew & Lucy
