New Website for Friends of Minstead...

It's a wonderful feeling finishing a project, have been working on this website over the summer. Minstead Study Centre is a very special place, I really enjoyed taking photographs of the wonderful gardens. Friends of Minstead Study Centre is a group responsible for raising all the money needed to keep Minstead Study Centre rolling. The staff run an excellent programme of sustainability education programmes for primary school children across the south of England. Many of the children come from inner-city areas and have not had many opportunities to get up close to nature. Minstead is a very special place in the heart of The New Forest, children sit under trees and listen to stories, go pond dipping, tromp through the forest, and so much more, all whilst learning about how precious our planet is and how we can help to care for it. This websites main function is to try and drive fundraising, so needed to show what a worthwhile cause Minstead Study Centre is. It is such a beautiful spot, the centre is also holding educational programmes for the local community and their annual open day is a wonderful event to take children along to. My daughter treasures her memories of going to Minstead in Year 3. I was delighted to be able to help and hope that they manage to raise lots of extra money for all their future plans. Many of the photographs of the children and activities are taken from their Facebook page and are taken by staff, the photos of the grounds are mine!
