Veterans’ Growth a Brief Round Up.

We understand we have been quiet for the last few month on here, but our social media has been going through the roof with updates, please follow us on all social media and get regular updates. We are delighted to announce that we have moved to our new site and we have been busy getting things ready for spring running a few courses in preparation for the influx of veterans. We still have a way to go but we have been receiving great support locally and nationally for the cause, and we are so appreciative of all the help and donations we have received so far.

Veterans’ Growth has been busy the last few months building and getting ready for the move to the new site, we are now in at the new site and have been busy getting it prepared for our first official course. With the new site has come some issues which have all been approached with a smile ( if we didn't we might cry) the day after the lease was signed three trees came down in a gale which also halted the work on the poly tunnel. Our freshly decorated building needed to be redone after we suffered a major water leak. This has been testing financially and mentally but it was completed with value in mind and with lots of assistance from people that wanted to help.

We have faced many challenges but we are now seeing the start line after a long slog getting to this position. There are many people to thank and we are ever grateful for peoples' generosity and willingness to lend a hand to get things finished. We are working with the probation service to complete some tasks as we constantly see ex forces members fall into the judicial system and we see working with them as a chance to offer them assistance as they move on in life.

We have a massive list of things going on and coming up.

We have a runner the the London Marathon

Four riders in the Surrey 100

We are in the Tesco Bags of Help scheme

We have had great support from a number of people and companies, here are a few; Gardenscape, Brewers Decorating Centres, iTip, Gee Tee Bulbs for their donations

We still have raised beds to construct, a Polytunnel to build and decorating to finish but we are getting there and I thank everyone for their support.

We have a great company wishing to help us with some major works to the main garden around the house which involves a lot of work. We have been so grateful that they approached us and wanted to do this, by volunteering the manpower and liaising with other companies to donate equipment and materials to make this happen. There will be more to come over the next few months about this project but a massive thanks to DJRLANDSCAPES for contacting us and wanting to do this project. We are amazed as always.
