The Bulldozers are at Imber

At long last the work has started on the Rifle Range to make the area suitable for use as a Children’s Nursery. The work is expected to take up to about 10 weeks and after its completion we can then start the work on building the Nursery. Exciting times for us.

We will see this year a complete transformation of our rear gate area , coinciding of course with the flowering of the 500 Daffodils at the roundabout planted by one of our committee members and Imber Volunteer,  Jim from the Dog Club.

The rifle range was used for practice shooting up to the late 1990’s. However  following changes in legislation (The Firearms Amendments Act 1997) brought in as a result of the tragedy at Dunblane Primary School, the range was closed.

The site has remained fairly much derelict since then and now this year will reopen as a Children’s Nursery.
