Saltburn Friends of the Valley Ltd

Saltburn Friends of the Valley Ltd is a registered charity (number 1155797).

It's main aims are:

- to promote the benefit of the public, the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment of Saltburn by the Sea by promoting biodiversity

- to advance the education of the public in the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment

The organisation is founded on the hardwork and dedication of a team of volunteers who manage the charity and invest significant time to make fantastic things happen in and around the woodland centre throughout the year.

Key recent developments

These include: a successful application to ‘Awards for All’ fund to build an new accessible toilet block for the Woodland Centre, plus substantial work on accessible paths, garden and seating areas. Following these improvements in facilities the organisation now has a centre that is available to use by members of the public, local businesses, and other activities.

Recently, Saltburn Friends of the Valley was selected as ‘charity of the year’ by the local Sainsbury store, which has increased the awareness of the group’s activities. The charity has created a website, which has enhanced our ability to promote our work and objectives. Importantly it has enabled us to promote activities, recruit members and celebrate our
achievements.In addition, the focus for last year has been marketing the organisation and establishing a facebook group, posters and leaflets across the town.

The charity has worked closely with local community groups and organisation. During the last year we have organiseda number of community events, including Paint the Woods, Blues festival, Folk festival, Lantern making and Fairy homes workshops and Santa Grotto. We work with Durham Youth Offending Services, including Community Payback initiative, also we have supported National Citizen Service (NCS) volunteers and work closely with Tees Valley
Wildlife Trust to monitor bats, birds and upgrade and preserve the woodland trails.
