Snakemoor Local Nature Reserve
Thanks to a very generous donation from a Snakemoor user, our local nature reserve is having the main earth paths excavated and replaced with crushed hardcore.
This work started on Tuesday 25th September, and will continue for several more days.
Once completed, the new surface will mean that paths which became muddy during the Winter will now be more user-friendly to walk along and provide better access for all.
The work is being carried out by Graeme Kimber, a local landscape gardener.
