An old ditty the writer unknown

They hang the man and flog the woman
That steal the goose from off the common,
But let the greater villain loose
That steals the common from the goose.

The law demands that we atone
When we take things we do not own
But leaves the lords and ladies fine
Who take things that are yours and mine.

The poor and wretched don’t escape
If they conspire the law to break;
This must be so but they endure
Those who conspire to make the law.

The law locks up the man or woman
Who steals the goose from off the common’
And geese will still a common lack
Till they go and steal it back.

All power and best wishes to you


Having spent a number of nights on the site, the potential for this to become a community hub of learning, shelter and growing is vast. Already we have had contributions of food, tents, promises of pallets and tools. We have had interest from a number of people with different backgrounds and experiences. We are currently clearing small area’s for tents, building the toilet, next will be a shelter to keep the wood and bio mass dry, then we will move on to a communal structure that is dedicated to warmth and another that is dedicated to quiet learning and reading. There is a vast repository of knowledge throughout man kind of basic structures that stand up to the weather. Below are a few websites that explore the possibility of what you may wish to build at the community support village.




It is a basic need to have shelter, at the Leicester Community Support Village by providing that means for ourselves we may realise we are far more capable, imaginative and creative than a debt based, monetary fundamentalist philosophy allows. If there is no harm than why is permission needed? If people find themselves out priced of living does that mean they have no true value?

All the best Dan

Lush GreeneryThe Community Support Village needs your support to get off the ground. Over the coming weeks we are going to need people power, the odd material here and there and your ideas.

If you are; interested in sustainable living, community activism, struggling and get made homeless or are homeless this is a space where you are invited to build your own shelter and learn to live off the land, as well as other know how to ensure you can sleep with a full belly of grub.

The area we are in is lush and full of potential. It is with in a half an hour/forty minute walk to Leicester City Centre.

We aim to create a family friendly place so that it is open to those in need and request all that take part respect this.

We will be experimenting with growing techniques, sustainable shelter building, off the grid energy generation and strengthening community relationships so we can move forward creatively and positively in these difficult times.
