07 Jul Albrighton Trust Moat and Gardens 30th Anniversary
The Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire, Jenny Wynn was invited to the 30th anniversary party of Albrighton Trust Moat and Garden and was delighted to be asked to present the fishing prizes. She also had some expert fishing tuition from Jeff, and caught her first fish!
The Albrighton Trust offers educational and recreational activities for people disadvantaged by disability, special needs or illness, who are welcomed and supported whatever their capability.
They have a proven track record of supporting the most hard to reach in society providing positive outdoor activities, offering opportunities to enhance or change lives.
Visitors’ health and well-being is the priority and its improvement through a programme of exciting and diverse activities which engage the imagination and push back the boundaries of normally accepted restrictions. Visitors can increase their practical skills in horticulture, Angling, Woodcraft, Conservation and Wildlife.
The Resource Centre and Gardens were designed around a 13th century scheduled Moat, now converted to an angling facility with six wheelchair accessible platforms and stocked with many native species of fish. Landscaped and natural gardens offer unsurpassable recreation and relaxational opportunities with a variety of wildlife to tempt children – and adults – into active participation.
The trust has worked under the expert guidance of English Heritage and also the Environment Agency both of whom have contributed greatly to the success of the overall project by offering their invaluable support at critical times of development.
