A Caerwent Community Project

Our Aim

It is our intention to convert two Cadw* fields, which are currently scrubland, into species rich and biodeverse environments.

We will be engaing with the community of Caerwent by encouraging them to join in with events that help to develop and maintain the areas, so they can be enjoyed by all.

We will be running fundraising events (when Covid-19 allows) to help us complete various projects for the meadows and for the Caerwent Roman Town Community.

We hope that various events we hold throughout the year to develop the meadows will provide oppotunities for the whole community to get involved in the project

Inclusion

Health and well being is at the heart of our project and we will actively seek to include as many people as possible to help and share in its success.

Support for local groups

We will encourage and support local groups who want to use the meadows for suitable events that in themselves are inclusive.

We have always enjoyed using these fields to walk around, we have a dog who loves running and playing in relative safety. It will be fantastic when the meadows are developed and we're really looking forward to strolling through them - it will be wonderfully relaxing and tranquil.
