Do you fancy becoming a community 'ambassador' for Cally Woods. As part of the Temple Project which is currently restoring the fabric of the Temple folly in the woods, we are seeking to encourage greater community 'ownership' and involvement in the history and heritage of the woods as part of the wider designed landscape of Cally. Nic Coombey and David Steel will lead a walk through Cally Woods on Wednesday 22nd October. The walk is open to anyone interested in learning more about the woods and their history. Join in by meeting at the Murray Information Centre at 10am.
In the mid nineteenth century the factor at Cally did many water colour sketches within the woods at Cally and a hundred years ago William McMurray took a number of photographs of Cally but neither of them drew or photographed the Temple.
The Gatehouse Development Initiative takes a holistic approach to rural development. The protection, conservation and promotion of the natural heritage of the Fleet Valley is combined with initiatives to adapt to environmental change through use of alternative energy, making community buildings energy efficient, offering training and building community capacity.
The winner will be the group which receives the most votes via the online poll and via Facebook.
