CRIMEA BARN

 

District Councillor issues financial challenge to double crowd funding initiative.

 

Twenty-seven year old Danny Stallard, of Clanfield Co-Op fame, has been overjoyed to receive a donation of £500 from ex district councilor Tony Denton towards his Justgiving  appeal for funding to Save the Crimea Barn.

 

Following on from this generous donation, Councillor Guy Shepherd has congratulated Danny and offered a further £1,000 from his devolved grant fund if the community can raise a further £500 in the next six weeks. If successful, this would result in £2,000 becoming available towards the start of this worthwhile community project.

 

In response, Rosemary Clarke, chair of the Crimea Barns Working Group (CBWG)  in congratulating colleagues has said “Even the mighty oak was once a little acorn – so lets all get behind Danny and make it happen”.

 

The good news is that within two days,  a Clanfield family pledged a further £100 which only leaves £400 to be raised to meet Councillor Shepherd’s challenge.

District Councillor issues financial challenge to double crowdfunding initiative 

Crimea Barn is the prominent, L-shaped, flint agricultural building on the corner of Chalton Lane and Green Lane, opposite the South Downs National Park.   It dates from the 1850s, was part of Down Farm and has been under threat of demolition as part of the housing development. 

William Heath began farming the land after World War One, firstly as a mixed market garden and dairy, then a full dairy farm in the early 1930s. There was a large pond to the west of the barn. Family members still live in the village and have vivid memories of childhood days spent on the farm.

Clanfield Parish Council wishes to take ownership of Crimea Barn from the developer and restore it as one of the few remaining historic buildings in the village. Potential uses are as a parish office and museum/community area, as well as possible offices for rent to generate income. It is also intended to rebuild the flint boundary wall; a section of the southern side remains. 

Twenty-seven year old Danny Stallard works at the Co-op and is one the parish council’s Crimea Barn Working Group members. He has launched a further crowdfunding appeal to help raise funds for the project and in response, a former district councillor has generously pledged £500 and District Councillor Guy Shepherd, impressed with Danny's commitment, has offered a further £1000 from his devolved budget if the community can raise a further £500 in the next few weeks. A Clanfield family has already kindly donated £100 and we have had   further contributions that   leave only £380 to be raised to meet that challenge - although any additional amount would be gratefully received.
