Hassals Lane was made available to us in late 2018. It was previously used by Ara as the site for their Horticulture and Viticulture courses. It was then used by the Seven Oaks school until 2017. The spaces sat vacant, growing wilder everyday with just a few passionate locals trying to keep it under control.
LiVS took on a rolling licence and has since made the space available to over 10 individual creatives, Free Theatre, Nature Play (a bush kindergarten initiates) and several other community groups. We've supported several working bees and would love to see the outside spaces tamed and available for community uses.
