    Weʼve raised £6,565 to Save the village of Barford!

    Barford, Warwick, UK
    Funded on Saturday, 1st June 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We need funds to fight plans to build a quarry just 350 metres away from our village, which is set in the heart of Shakespeare's County, close to both Warwick Castle and Charlecote Park.

    The construction of this quarry would have the following devastating effects:

    ** Irreparable damage to the land targeted for the quarry site. Currently prime farmland, it would not be possible to return this site to its current beauty or use.

    ** The destruction of an area of beautiful natural countryside and heritage.

    ** Serious health issues for the villagers, including children at the village nursery and St Peters Primary School. Quarry dust causes potentially fatal and life-limiting lung diseases such as Silicosis.

    ** An additional 60 lorries to the A429 every day, plus numerous site vehicles, including slow lorries spraying water to try to dampen down the dust. (If you think it's bad now.....)

    We have already raised and used funds to pay for reports on damage to the environment, sustainability, destruction of prime agricultural land, implications for heritage etc. Unfortunately, it seems that nobody is listening.....

    We immediately need additional funds to employ mineral planning experts. It is likely that we will need further specialist advice and the services of a barrister to make our fight successful.

    Please please help save our village! For further information, please visit the Barford Community Website at

    You can also make donations at Barford Village shop - make your cheque payable to 'Barford Residents Association', and put it in an envelope marked 'Sand and Gravel'.

    Or donate directly to the account funds - Sort code 77-74-59, Account 01404960

        Hope this helps in some way in stopping what the council has proposed.
