Community Polytunnel

The polytunnel was purchased by Whitehill Town Council using funding from East Hampshire District Council’s Healthy New Town grant. It is located at Building 94 on the Enterprise Park and will primarily be used by youth, community groups & schools in the Whitehill & Bordon area. It will be used as a horticulture project hub to grow floral displays, plants and food which could be re-used within the town. This will benefit children who require this type of outdoor learning and social environment facility to obtain new skills. We aim for this to grow into our first climate change awareness hub, introducing solar panels to produce lighting for the structure, reuse of waste materials and usage of natural substances whilst showing children these techniques when using the polytunnel.

 

This project has been funded by the Healthy New Towns programme and kindly supported by EHDC, Community First and Abri.

More details will be made available on how to book the polytunnel and terms & conditions will be found on the Whitehill Town Council’s & Whitehill & Bordon Community Trust’s websites in due course.

If you have any questions before the session, please do contact us via email on info@whitehilltowncouncil.gov.uk or call the office on 01420 473123.
