BRONZE AGE Beaker People Burial Site

 

Quite by accident we recently found out that we have a Bronze Age Burial site in the Wildlife Haven at Court House. It was discovered in a small quarry in 1826. We have been told that it is around 4400 years old. Here is "Paul" our chairman, with a few learners from Able2Achieve, on a recent visit to Taunton Museum where we were shown the beaker and rams horn found in the grave.

 

Thousands of Trees Planted at Court House

Durring 2022/23, we have planted, with the help of friends and volunteers from the local community, more than 2750 small trees to form a hedgerow along the new fence along the side of the public footpath. Around 50 more trees were planted to increase the width of the central wood in the Wildlife Haven and 1250 trees around the side and at the bottom of the field known as Lawns. Everyone had a wonderful time. If you'd like to come along and join in next time please email us at: geraniumtrust@gmail.com

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

'Tuesday Gardening Group'

We have now started a community  gardening group at Court House. We meet on Tuesdays morning at Court House and Wildlife Haven. The idea is to get folk of all ages out into the fresh air gardening, keeping fit and making friends. There are 10 flower beds in Geoff's Meadow Memory Garden and we desperately need help to look after these together with other areas of the garden. In the autum and winter months there are trees and hedgerows to plant and maintain. So, if you are willing and able to help, please email us.

We also have groups of young people with learning differences coming several days each week to do gardening, bird watching and other nature studies in the surrounding fields that our now a Wildlife Haven.

If you are interested in joining this group, or helping us in any other way, please email: geraniumtrust@gmail.com
