Watch a Message About Our Campaign
The Enterprise Centre is a registered Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee and also operates as Naturally Enterprising from our now purpose-built outdoor education centre, which is situated in the heart of The Kirklees Valley Trail.
Kirklees Lodge Community Asset
We are hoping to repair, rebuild and enhance the Kirklees Lodge pathways and community gardens for all to enjoy whilst also encouraging more people to use The Kirklees Valley Trail. Thank you for your support.
Naturally Enterprising is an initiative that combines enterprise training and personal development with the natural environment. Our purpose is to build capacity and develop confidence for those in need and we do this by encouraging individuals to access the many benefits of nature whilst contributing to the development of local community green spaces.
The Enterprise Centre has participated in two Erasmus projects in recent times. They have worked with social enterprise and university partners in diverse countries such as Germany, Spain, Lithuania, Portugal, Cyprus and Turkey, working on projects to develop collaborative approaches to the marketing and online support of social enterprises and non-profit organisations. The projects helped share expertise and experience, and promote the activities of The Enterprise Centre to a broad network of European partners and those links remain in place today. The Enterprise Centre still has hopes to work within transnational partnerships and projects in the future.
The Enterprise Centre now has 3 bespoke training rooms a donation café and the stables built to house our lovely ponies.
We are currently undertaking some massive repairs to our Secret Garden, which has been funded by Veolia Environmental Trust and we hope to reopen to the public in summer 2021.
We are also doing a crowd funder with Aviva to raise funds to make the community garden and lodge pathways more accessible and a stop off as residents take a walk along The Kirklees Valley Trail. You can now see us on the Maps which are scattered across the Trail.
