Conservation in action at Greenway Boathouse  

A project to restore the Boathouse has been going on over the winter months, to keep this iconic building which was the scene of the crime in 'Dead Man's Folly' at it's best. There's a bit more work to carry out this year, but already the Boathouse is looking much improved.

Greenway's school allotment 

Pupils from Galmpton carry on a traditional link between Greenway and their school by tending to an allotment in the Walled Garden. Once the vegetables have been harvested, the kids come for a celebration with their parents and enjoy the fruits of their labours with a delicious dinner.
