A New Warden at Shallowford

I’m sitting at my desk fully intending to write an amusing and informative article –  but it’s far too easy to ‘lift my eyes to the quiet hills’ and watch the clouds scudding through a blue sky. The birds are …

The Shallowford Trust

As the work of Elizabeth and Rosemary developed at East Shallowford they realised that for the work to continue a formal Trust needed to be formed. Trustees were appointed to the Shallowford Trust and the first Trust meeting was held in June 2002. In 2009 H.R.H. Prince Charles wrote to Elizabeth Braund saying that he ‘had recently learnt of the wonderful work that she and Rosemary Bird had been engaged with at East Shallowford Farm since 1976’. He recognised ‘the generous work that they had both been involved with, making a difference to the lives of young people, letting people from deprived city areas rediscover their relationship with Nature and live together in greater Child enjoying a new experience provided by the Shallowford Trustmutual understanding and harmony.’

Both Rosemary and Elizabeth are no longer with us but the work of the Shallowford Trust continues, with Debbie Sandels as Trust manager supported by the Trustees. The sign outside the original Providence Chapel read ‘All Welcome’ and that is still the case at East Shallowford Farm today.

There are new challenges for the Shallowford Trust. We would love your support in going forward with this work, meeting the needs of many different people from a wide range of backgrounds to give them a new vision for the future. In the words of the founder, Elizabeth Braund, ‘This is about a whole approach, God in every part of His world, nothing is untouched by His reach or concern, and in Him we find the answer to the age old Question “Who am I?”’

God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
