The Conservation Group committee was pleased at the outcome of the small survey that we recently undertook, on the use of the nature reserve.
Respondents said they enjoyed the peace and quiet, nature and wildlife in the Reserve. Photography and walking are also key reasons to visit.
Improvements in access and paths were the most popular changes that people would like to see. People also wanted to know about other walks and activities in the area, along with more information about wildlife and what you can expect to see when you visit the Reserve.
The recent funding from the Flowers in the Vale project has helped with new gates for the Reserve, which offer better access for people with buggies or wheelchairs. Going forward we will be looking for new funding opportunities to help improve the paths.
The feedback about wildlife information and walks will be useful when we update the leaflet about the Reserve.
Thanks to everyone who took part!
