Our main fundraising aim at present is to complete the extensive necessary renovation and extension of the newly-acquired Pond House, which will accommodate 6 supported Cohousing members in an ideal location in the High Street of Wadhurst, within very close proximity to all local amenities.
The ambitious fundraising target for this whole project is £613,000, some of which will come from substantial grants.
We need your help to meet our target in order to bring all aspects and details of the property up to the required excellent standard and to enable the supported cohousers to move in by July 2021. This includes, for example, all the internal fixtures and fittings in the main house and extension and all the soft landscaping needed around the house. These elements will most closely affect and enhance the quality of life of the supported cohousers who will be the new tenants of Pond House.
Some supported cohousers who currently live in Soltane or The White House at The Mount are ready for a new stage of independence in their lives and are very much looking forward to moving to Pond House. They have already begun to prepare the way by actively cultivating new connections and friendships in the wider Wadhurst community and are very keen and excited to make Pond House their home as soon as possible.
