Barrmill Conservation Group

We are a rural community group dedicated to providing activities for the social, physical and mental well being of our local residents and visitors to the Village.

Fiona Fisher – our Outdoor Community Development Officer

Since 2010 we have been undertaking a project to develop our outdoor community space into a community garden. Whilst the development has been led and delivered exclusively by volunteers, we have received a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund in 2019 to employ an Outdoor Community Development Worker for 3 years. The role aims to develop a calendar of events and activities centred around the 4 themes of the garden – nature, horticulture, health and history. Overall the project encourages wider use of the outdoor space by locals and visitors for recreation, socialisation, education and food growing.

We have a variety of outdoor activities for people to get involved in. We are building on existing links in the wider community and making new ones regularly. We have a wonderful outdoor resource; a place where people of all ages and abilities and can gather together to meet, relax, or take part in the many opportunities on offer; where they can socialise with friends, neighbours and visitors in a community setting, whatever their interests.
