Indaver and the Farm Machinery Preservation Society are back with Crank Up 2023 this April! Bigger and better than ever, this family fun day out involves displays of classic cars and tractors, craft demonstrations and farm animals. All donations received on the day go to Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust.
The on-site Indaver Information Hub will be open for all visitors, where can learn about the impressive development of the Rivenhall IWMF and Energy Centre and Woodhouse Farm heritage site, as well as the sustainable circular economy and waste hierarchy.
The on-site Information Hub at the Rivenhall IWMF and Energy Centre is opening this Sunday (15th of May) for the local community to visit. There will be an exhibition available to learn about Indaver’s progress and plans for both the IWMF site, as well as the adjoining Woodhouse Farm heritage site.
The open day is being held in conjunction with the Farm Machinery Preservation Society’s annual Crank Up event. The local group are hosting displays of classic tractors, working demonstrations and presentations of farm implements with free entry and a complementary BBQ lunch, for anyone who wants to come down to join the event.
The Woodhouse Farm consultation day had a great response with many of the local community joining Indaver to find out more about the project and engage in the conversation. A key highlight was the wide range of interests in different parts of the project. There were many engaging discussions on topics from ecology, WW2 history and agriculture, to public access, employment, and volunteering opportunities. The invaluable community feedback and additional ideas shared on the day will help shape the next stages of the project and continue to bring Woodhouse Farm back to life.
