A local drone operator posted this birds eye view of THE OASIS and the bike track which is next door.
Look out for this sign on Fiskerton Road, Cherry Willingham, which will tell you that you have arrived at the top gate. THE OASIS is just a couple of hundred yards down the track.
Please ensure that your visit is pre arranged so that we can ensure that a member of staff is there to welcome you. We are often busy working with marginalised young people and need to make sure that we safeguard their welfare.
Starkey and Brown have really taken this project to their hearts. As a ﬁrm they are committed to paying the rent for the next 10 years, have bought this websites domain name for us and donated both of the signs letting people know that they have arrived. On top of that the staﬀ have spent several days helping with the early tree planting and strimming and last year they ran a sponsored event. The money for that event went to renewing our hen ﬂock after a visit from Mr Fox.
Rilmac were extremely generous in the donation of a huge quantity of old scaﬀolding boards. They have all gone to really good use making deep beds, compost bins, muck and wood chip bays, decking for a social area and cladding old containers used as raised ﬂower beds.
We were extremely pleased to win a bid from the National Lottery. The money went to purchasing a wonderful polytunnel, worker sessional time and tools. We hope to put another bid in when the proper time lapse has occurred.
Wickes have been wonderful. They went through a period of reorganising their yard and gave us both, what to them was unuseable, as well as slightly damaged goods. We received over quite a period of time, chipped baths that we use as raised beds, lots of broken tiles that have gone into the bottom of those baths and into the tyre pots to aid drainage, damaged fence panels that wertaken apart and used to clad the static van making it into a cabin that blends into the environment, broken bags of compost that were a fantastic gift and lots more beside.
Scothern Nursery have provided us with seeds including seed potatoes at cost. What was even more brilliant was that they put up posters for us and had a collection box. Customers were invited to buy an extra plant, packet of seeds or tool and put it in the box of us. An absolute magniﬁcent idea.
Lincoln Colonial Rotary, like Starkey and Brown have really taken us into their hearts. They have provided untold funds to help with our garden development and are now helping with funding for the young people’s work. They have been extremely generous and encouraging.
