Objectives

Our purpose is to promote and improve the economic, social and environmental life of the town. Our team works hard to ensure Moretonhampstead is a flourishing, dynamic place to live and visit, where every person feels included and supported. For the past 25 years, the Trust has been providing new facilities and services for Moretonhampstead and its surroundings and supporting groups and organisations that are making a positive impact.

Activities

A few examples would be the Information Centre, the new Sports Centre building, many town enhancements, conservation of wet meadowland, and the conversion in 2011 of the Primary School at Green Hill into a Centre for Arts, Heritage, Business and Youth. The Centre is flourishing today, with a popular Art Gallery, outreach Arts projects, and a well supported youth club. In the community we have developed a range of health and wellbeing projects, especially for isolated people, such as a Community Allotment, a weekly free drop-in / cafe, and digital befriending work.
