Our latest projects

The Endcliffe Park Toad

The Endcliffe Park Toad has seen better days, even in its second incarnation.

We are raising money to replace it in metal so that it will last longer.


Please help us raise replace the Endcliffe Park Toad in 2024.

For more information see our dedicated Toad Page or click on the Donate Button here.

We are currently looking at improvements to

The Forge Dam Playground

In the Autumn of 2022 we completed a consultation of playground users and everyone with an interest in the Forge Dam area, and were pleased to receive nearly 180 suggestions and comments.

The next step is the creation of a management plan so we have much work to do.

Decisions about design, access, the environment, equipment and fundraising target have still to be taken.

We are of course accepting donations via our own secure donation page.
