Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal visits Merryhue Farm
Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal visited Merryhue Farm in February, where she learned about the projects that the not for profit community interest companies Battling On, Work Skills South West, Transferable Skills Training and Grown That Way have been working on. We also had presenters from other local groups, including Age UK, Tamar Grow Local and Plymouth University.
We were absolutely thrilled to be able to have Her Royal Highness visit the farm, and we hope that she enjoyed it!

Welcome to Battling On
The courage and devotion of our forces is recognised without doubt. However, it has also been acknowledged that some service personnel find it difficult to settle back into civilian life after leaving the forces.
Using eco based interventions, a variety of indoor and outdoor activities and peer camaraderie, Battling On supports military veterans by providing a safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. We host a number of activities predominantly designed and led by veterans, operating onsite at Merryhue Farm on Thursdays and Fridays.
Armed Forces Covenant
Batting On commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community. We recognise the value Serving Personnel, Cadets, Veterans, and military families contribute to our business and our country.
