We have some really exciting news. Manning’s Pit is for sale. We have joined with the Green Man CIO (Charity No 1170742) to help buy the fields for the local community, and today we are launching a huge fund-raising campaign. We are looking to raise in excess of £250,000. We know this is a big ask, but we also know how generous you all are, and how much Manning’s Pit means to you all. More information about how to donate is on the website www.manningspit.com . Meanwhile – spread the word!
Ryan Vowles sent us this photograph from Iceland earlier in the week, so maybe he won’t mind if we change the word “Save” for “Buy” when we quote the last two lines of his Prize winning poem, “Together”:
So make a lot of effort, put your heart and soul into it
And maybe, together, we can Buy Manning’s Pit
