GymNation, a charity based in Gloucester, provides facilities to the Muslim community (although not exclusively). In 2011 it took over the St James City Farm and Garden from Gloucester City Council to save it from closure due to cutbacks. The Summerfield Trust awarded a grant to help it develop the farm to enable local people to get involved in farming, gardening and other environmental projects. The Duchess of Gloucester visited the Farm in July 2013 to open the new cafe. Kate Hicks Beach, trustee of SCT, joined the celebrations and much enjoyed meeting Faisal Atcha’s owl!
