  • Need

    Need

    Currently the hay barn is located between two isolation units which could potentially lead to the contamination of the hay. To avoid this occurring we need a dedicated separate hay barn.

    Solution

    It will reduce the potential risk of contamination/potential and will reduce the number of staff entering the unit which in turn will enable staff to work more efficiently and effectively.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To have clean, dry un-contiminated storage area for hay.

    Activities

    » Build a new hay barn

    New hay barn design and relocated to a more suitable area


    Aim 2

    Help staff work more efficently through relocation of hay barn and also managing stock of hay

    Activities

    » Relocation and design of hay barn will enable staff to access hay more easily and ordering and stocking of hay can be done more effectively.

    Staff will spend less time unloading and transporting hay and barn relocated nearer to the main stables.


  • Impact

    Impact

    New hay barn will enable the project to re address the number of rescues that can be managed at a particular time as the relocation will provide us with an additional isolation area.

    Risk

    Planning permission has been sought and approval and terms need to be finalised. Expert advice has been sought regarding this as the farm is located in Brecon Beacons National Park

    Reporting

    Press release, personal thank yous and article in newsletter. For donations over a certain amount their name will appear on bunting which will hang in the barn.

    Opportunity for donors to visit when annual Open Day held.
