  • It will be a high quality single storey wooden construction
  • It will have disabled access and provide an ideal environment for delivering Learning at the Lock and other education programmes for both adults and children

We are profoundly thankful to everyone who has contributed to us raising the £335.000 that has allowed us to start building and we are still looking for further funding to complete the project. You can help us reach our target by buying £10 shares in logs for the building or by donating a larger sum of money!

Feel free to buy as many as you would like and if you are a UK tax payer we can claim the gift aid and so each £10 share contributes £12.50 towards the building. If you would like to help you can download the form with all the details here.or by contacting us at enquiries@rwt.org.uk

You can follow the progress on the building by taking a look at our home page under the Twitter feed or by following us in Twitter at https://twitter.com/RickyWaterTrust or you can come along to Batchworth and take a look for yourself!
