The school will be using the Paddock in Finches Lane during the school day for outside learning and play time. Therefore, because it is Term time and in line with Government guidance, we ask that the Paddock is not used by children not at school or the community during the school day.
Thank You.

Corvid Dawn - Wild Bird rescue

Can you help?


This is probably one of our most worrying times we’ve had over the years because it’s risking everything we do. The land we have been renting for the past two years is no longer available from July 2020. We are urgently looking to rent (longterm) or purchase one acre of land in a quiet location preferably in or around the Lambourn Valley. The only visitors would be myself (Aimee) and husband Dario. A water supply would be very useful but if not available we will truck in own water. We will also need to construct some free-standing aviaries, but no planning permission is required.
If you can help, please contact Corvid Dawn on:
email aimeewallis@yahoo.co.uk
