Somerset Art Works successfully gained a Pocket Park grant to work with the communities of North Taunton to improve an unloved play area known locally as ‘The Cage’. Through wildlife-friendly planting and community engagement activities an unused public space will be transformed into somewhere that can be enjoyed and appreciated by all ages.
Otters in Taunton
Spotted today during a lunchtime ramble at French Weir here in Taunton on 1 December 2015 were three lovely otters.
We had a lovely time at Somerfest, we met so many wonderful people and were excited to be able to share information abnout the Routes to the River Tone project as well as the work of Somerset Wildlife Trust and Knit for Nature. For more information on Somerfest click here.
Join Ollie the Otter and his friend as these characters perform and launch you on an exploration of the river. Enjoy reading the story of Ollie the Otter and Vern the Water Vole as you discover the hidden waterways and green spaces of Taunton. Great family fun (walk is 1.5km pram and wheelchair accessible).
