We have got unexpectedly AMAZING news to share with you, which will hopefully bring a smile to your day!


Although we had a deadline of the end of October to raise the £60,000 needed to complete the purchase of a vital plot of land at Westhay Moor National Nature Reserve, thanks to YOU we did it ……and in just four weeks!

Thanks to almost 1000 generous supporters, we will now be able to ensure the long-term stability of our wonderful wetland habitats in this very special place and provide safe homes for some of Somerset’s most precious wildlife.

In fact, as we are continuing to receive donations, we will now be able to do even more.  At Westhay we are looking to create better paths for visitors, and build dipping platforms and boardwalks, so people who find it difficult to walk can still get to experience its amazing wildlife. Your help, together with grants we are hoping to secure, will also enable us to do this.

Thank you so much for your amazing generosity and we look forward to bringing you updates on our progress with this very exciting project.

You can still donate by clicking the button to the left. Alternatively you can donate over the phone by calling 01823 652429 or you can send a cheque made payable to Somerset Wildlife Trust to 34 Wellington Road, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 5AW.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping us to transform Westhay
