All funding was raised from donations and grants and subsequently the area will be self-funding. There will be no cost to Reach villagers via the precept.
Projects identified and agreed to by the Parish Council are:
On Saturday 7th December 2013 the vast majority of the 3,550 trees and shrubs were planted, which form the new Woodland. Grateful thanks go to the Forestry Commission who funded this venture."
