Visit from MP for Enfield North

Last Wednesday we were delighted to welcome Labour MP for Enfield North Feryal Clark to the vineyard.  She came to see how the vineyard is making a difference to the wellbeing of volunteers.

Here's Feryal's report on her visit... 

Forty Hall Visit

On Wednesday I had the pleasure of visiting the team at Forty Hall Vineyard to learn more about how they produce such consistently high-standard wine, but also their fantastic work supporting our local community.

As a social enterprise, Forty Hall is staffed almost entirely by volunteers and their team work tirelessly all year round to plant, grow and harvest the grapes which are turned into a variety of delicious wines.

Alongside this, the team run a range of award-winning community outreach programmes, including support for local refugee groups, and eco-therapy, allowing those struggling with mental health problems to spend time outdoors in a supportive, caring environment.

We are incredibly lucky to have such a well-run and beautiful resource right on our doorstep, and I very much enjoyed talking to the team about some of the exciting plans they have for the future

Committed and passionate people like the team at Forty Hall are what makes our community here in Enfield so great, and I would encourage everyone to pay a visit, and enjoy some of their excellent produce!
