Funders

The Heritage Lottery Fund

provided £737,000 to restore the basic infrastructure of Warley Woods and this was spent on fencing, pathways, benches, bins, tree works and new trees. It also paid for a community archaeological dig. This work was completed in December 2007. The Heritage Lottery Fund also funded our Oral History Project which ran in 2012-2014.

Big Lottery Fund

funded the creation of the children’s play area, new sculptures and woodland paths. Through the Community Spaces Programme it also funded the development and interpretation of The Wilderness and the creation of two wildflower meadow pilot areas.

Sandwell MBC

Gives the Trust core unrestricted funding which helps provide for salaries and some of the maintenance of the park. The Trust also applies for funding for projects and Sandwell MBC has supported the golf summer school, the fountain restoration and two projects through Smethwick Town Committee. It provided major match funding for the Heritage Lottery Project which ended in December 2007.

Forestry Commission

Gives the Trust a small grant for providing woodland for public use and also grants to help with tree works and for public access.

Charles Henry Foyle Trust

Gave the Trust a grant to refurbish parts of the Pavilion including installing a wheelchair accessible toilet, refurbishing the existing toilets, installing double glazing and replacing the boiler.

Fountain Restoration

We received grants from WREN and Cory Environmental Trust in Britain to restore the drinking fountain. Third party funding was given by Sandwell MBC
