THANK YOU!

Our Art and Craft Cafe on July 14th was a great success, raising £585, which will go towards improving the access way to the new Activity Room at the reserve. A huge thank you to everyone who baked for the cake stall and the refreshments, to stallholders who generously donated to our funds, and to all the visitors on the day.


THE NEW ACTIVITY ROOM IS HERE!

On Tuesday, December 5th, 2017 our new activity room arrived, delivered and skillfully unloaded right where we wanted it by Old Haulage.
It now sits in a lovely sheltered and sunny site looking out over the reserve. It is light and spacious, dry and warm, and with the eco-loo resited next-door it will be a wonderful facility for the reserve.

New Bird Hide
Our new two-person bird hide is now in place in an elevated position overlooking the big pond. It provides excellent views over the water and also into the reeds and willows surrounding the pond.
