In May 2015, and with funds raised locally and from the Big Lottery Fund, the Foundation completed the acquisition of the Log Cabin and Camping ground at Trimingham, near Mundesley on the North Norfolk Coast.
A timber cabin, built with logs from Finland with beds for up to 12 people, in two separate bunk bedded dormitories with accessible toilet and shower facilities, a communal kitchen and dining/recreation/meeting area, built in a small camping ground set in remote rural countryside just a quarter of a mile inland from the North Norfolk coast close to the villages of Mundesley and Overstrand.
The Cabin can be hired for day use (meetings, training etc) or residential use.
The site has been used as a residential centre for youth and community groups and is a favourite for groups training for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme. Since aquisition the grounds and inside of the cabin have been improved with new equipment and facilities available for hire to youth groups, community organisations and provide respite accommodation for families in need. In addition it will be come the training base for a range of support services offered by the Foundation to grow community volunteering skills.
The Log Cabin availability is not affected by the ongoing negotiations surrounding the future of the northern camping field.
