Thanks to the help of Tarmac - Aberthaw, we have been able to erect fencing around our bunkhouse area where Woody’s Lodge are based in the week.

Woody’s Lodge opened its doors at our Farm in August last year after moving from HMS Cambria. It has since been working with local veterans to provide them with therapeutic support in a care farm setting

The fencing now means that veterans, many of whom suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), have valuable privacy as they receive support at the Vale base.

Tarmac has a history of supporting the Farm which goes back to its establishment in the 1980’s when it donated cement to make pathways around the site. This latest donation was made possible after ex-Aberthaw employee, Glyn Davies a valued maintenance volunteer at the Farm since retiring in 2016, contacted for further help.

Kara Bennett, Tarmac Aberthaw’s environmental co-ordinator, added:

We are proud to provide continued support to the Amelia Trust Farm and have a long-standing relationship which spans many years. Just last year we provided a further donation of postcrete and, when we were approached again, we were only too happy to help.

The work of the Amelia Trust Farm and Woody’s is fantastic, and we hope this little help will go a long way to supporting the many people who visit and rely on the facility’s services.
