Something New and Work

Tuesday, October 24th 2017

Over the years there have been many varied projects carried out at Foxglove, funded by grants.  The Cascading Pools provide different habitats for many species.

Things look a little different now!

Our Touchscreen was 'opened' in December 2014 and has been a great success.


And of course our very special wetland was developed with grants in the winter of 2008.  Volunteers have been clearing some of the ponds and today the vegetation was removed after allowing any 'bugs and beasties' to crawl back into the water.

A grant assissted us to plant Yellow Rattle plug plants across the moor and the results have been spectacular.

Plover's Pool was another project.

Many other developments have been carried out with the help of grants.  You will notice at the top of the blog a new header, the Aviva Community Fund 2017.  We have applied for and progressed through several rounds to get this far, but now we need your help.  Please follow the links and vote for Foxglove so that we can gain a grant to help with conservation work.  Thank you very much.

Work continued today checking and if necessary removing or replacing tree tubes.

Many thanks to the volunteers who carried out a great deal of work today.
