Sudbury Common Lands Charity was fortunate to be a one of the beneficiaries of the legacy of Tony Wheeler. Tony served as a trustee of the charity for ten years and was always keen to see that it was equipped to fulfill its land management duties.
With this in mind, the trustees used his bequest to purchase a tractor and a buck-rake - important items of equipment that ensured the management work could continue effectively for many years to come.
Sisters Amanda, Dawn and Julie Coppock raised significant funds for the charity in memory of their father who had been a stalwart of the Riverside Projects Team. The money was used to purchase a sweeper brush to clear leaves and mud from the Valley Trail. Now the trail is in a much cleaner condition, thanks to the machine which carries Dave Coppock's name.
The charity continues to receive donations great and small, which enable it to carry out its work. This is in addition to the income received from contracts that the ranger team fulfill on the Sudbury riverside.
Further contributions continue to be received and the charity is always keen to acknowledge these, whether great or small, on their 'Donations Board' which is currently under repair but will soon be located at the entrance to the Common Lands near the Mill Hotel.
This website was created by the Mackman Group and the funding was provided by Business Link (EEDA) and the estate of Kit Farnes for which the Trustees are most grateful.
