The Propagating Group will need a new home from 2016, and a Relocation Working Group is seeking a suitable site for the Propagating Group’s new home.

They have been investigating several possibilities, one of which is within the YMCA Camp site in Inverlochy St, Anglesea. This site offers many advantages.

The Relocation Working Group, in consultation with the Propagators, is at present developing a brief of their  needs for the new site,

We are hoping to make the new home as environmentally friendly as possible, reusing building materials where practicable, and aiming to be self-sufficient in water, and ideally power.

If anyone knows of a shed, garage or three drawer filing cabinet that is no longer required, and could be relocated to the Propagating Group’s new home, Bill – 5363 3673 – would be delighted to hear from you.
