CPRE Visit

Wednesday, June 5th 2013

Foxglove has worked closely with the Wensleydale Branch of the CPRE recently on a number of projects including the construction of a stone wall seating area outside the Field Centre, the establishment of reedbeds on the banks of the lake and the planting of two small orchards to benefit bees.

The reserve was presented with a plaque today by some of the branch members in recognition of this work which was the result of many voluntary hours of help from people in the local community. All of these projects have helped to enrich the rural environment locally.

After the presentation, the group went on a guided walk to look at the improvements they had funded. They also looked at some of the other work carried out by volunteers and the resulting diversity of plants and animals - they were lucky enough to see Grey Wagtail from the lake hide!  All at Foxglove are very grateful to the CPRE members for their generosity and support which have helped to improve the quality and diversity of habitats as well as the visitor experience.

A group from the Ozelton WI also visited the reserve this morning and enjoyed a guided walk.
