THE ZONE-DOWNDERRY METHODIST CHURCH Main Road, Downderry;
11 July 2023 UPDATE ON THE FUTURE OF THE ZONE- the Methodist Church
A new Steering Group, made up of local residents, has been formed and met to support the future of the Zone in Downderry following the decision of the Methodist circuit to withdraw from the building in the coming months. There are challenging times ahead as the Methodist Circuit has now officially indicated that the Zone can no longer function in its current form due to the lack of Methodists. The only way forward is for the community to take it on as an asset. We are working with the Methodist Church, Parish Council & DaSRA to move this forwarThis Group agreed the need to create a secure and positive future for the building as a sustainable community wellbeing hub.
We will continue to run the building as it is currently, working in close cooperation with the Methodists, looking at a number of ways to ensure a smooth transition.
Further updates will be issued as the project develops.

The Memorial Garden, in the centre of the Downderry overlooking Whitsand Bay, plays a central role as a community venue for remembering and celebrating those who are no longer with us. The garden is a much loved place for walks and quiet seating on benches marked in memory of loved ones. For further information, contact the firstname.lastname@example.org.
The garden is maintained by volunteers who meet the 2nd Saturday in month (March to Oct) 10am - 12 Noon. If you would like to volunteer a couple of hours once a month, March - October, please contact Tim Pullin at email Tim.email@example.com
December 2022: The Garden in Seaton is in need of a makeover, especially the front part, which, although has lovely primroses in the spring, and striking cardoons, also has grass, ivy and other weeds that are taking over. We are clearing it out, with the intention to replant quite a bit of it.
Sadly, Heather, who has organised the volunteers for several years, is having to step back, however the rest of the little team are going strong, and can do with any help that you can give.
If anyone can manage just a couple of hours a month, on any dry Tuesday morning, please come along. (Note the change from Monday).
We do have some tools, but if you can bring your own gardening gloves, and if you do have some hand tools, please bring them - and wear sturdy shoes.
So, if you are looking for an activity to do in the New Year, to work off the Christmas cheer, then gardening is a great exercise and way to meet new people.
Many thanks, Viv, Anne, Sue and the team
