As you may already know, at the end of August, we shared the news that we were successful in raising the £60,000 needed to buy and restore 11 vital acres of land at our Westhay Moor National Nature Reserve in the Avalon Marshes. Thanks to over 1,000 donors we hit the target in record time, demonstrating how much passion there is across the county for this very special place.
We wanted to give you a short update to let you what’s happened since. Purchases of this kind never happen overnight. We are continuing to work with the current owners to complete all the necessary paperwork and legal requirements. We’re now on the home straight and are really hoping to exchange on the purchase before Christmas. What a great gift to wildlife the land will be!
