Restoring Shire Oak Heath Appeal

Help us raise funds to purchase neighbouring Shire Oak Heath and bring it into the park. The current owners, recognising the work of The Greensand Trust to improve the surrounding area and habitats, have agreed to transfer the land to us on the understanding that we launch a public appeal to help raise the funds to secure the site and its restoration.
