Digging for Dignity at Goyt Valley House, New Mills

Incredible Edible New Mills have received funding from Derbyshire’s Youth Activity Fund to develop a cross generational gardening project based at Goyt Valley House residential home. The money did not match what they were hoping for but following a workshop organised by High Peak CVS they have made a successful application to the Vulnerability Fund set up by Police and Crime Commission.

Last week Sue was able to thank Hardyal Dhindsa personally when he visited New Mills. She explained that the money would hep to employ an Outreach Youth Worker linked to the Digging for Dignity project.

If you want to engage in some gentle physical activity outdoors, develop your family’s gardening skills or simply engage in friendly chat, come and meet the team.

First gardening day Saturday 10th April 11.00 – 1.00, or if wet same time Saturday 17th April

There is plenty of space to work within Corvid guidelines – but please understand if they need to limit numbers.

Due to Covid restrictions they will not be able to access toilet facilities or provide drinks and refreshments.
