FUNDING NEWS  We'd like to thank the players of the People's Postcode Lottery, who have made it possible this year for us to lay 400 metres of native hedge for wildlife. Our hedgelaying team were funded by a fantastic grant of £9268, and the woodland birds, bats, dormice and insects will all benefit from the work.

 

More information on this can be found on the People's Postcode Lottery website, www.postcodelottery.co.uk
