Johnny Mercer MP Visits Merryhue Farm
Johnny Mercer, Member of Parliament for Plymouth Moor View, visited the veterans at Battling On to see how they're getting on. He spoke to all of the veterans and listened to their concerns. He learned of all the amazing things we get up to around the farm and in the Countryside Hub.
Battling On at Tatton Park Flower Show
In July, several Battling On staff went to Manchester to attend the Tatton Park Flower Show. Kenny Raybould, our master Horticulturalist, had put together designs for the Fleurs de Villes portion of the show. He put together a Tamar landgirl, Barbara, and she went on a grand trip to the north!
This three-part video series documents Barbara's arrival to Merryhue farm, all the way up to show day! We hope you enjoy the journey as much as we did.

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.
