Community Matters

Blenheim is committed to being the lifeblood of the local economy.

We are dedicated to conserving and protecting the land for future generations, as well as creating jobs and opportunities for people in the local area. We want as many people as possible to benefit from what we have to offer.

We promote the use of designated areas of the estate for leisure activities and walks, and have created a series of permissive paths to encourage the use of the estate land to reduce local traffic between the local villages.

We employ many local people across the estate and are committed to initiatives such as our partnerships with organisations such as Aspire and Farmability that fall within our social prescribing philosophy.

We use many local suppliers throughout the estate, and make sure local produce and items are used as much as possible in all that we do.

 

We're keen to engage and support our local community and wider afar to get involved.

We love to share activities to help you get involved with nature in our monthly newsletters

If you are organising a project in our local community get in touch, we'd love to see how we can support

We regularly host workshops e.g. bushcraft activities to help engage people of all ages in nature
