We are hugely grateful to trustee Ron Bryant, who purchased Lea Farm Lake from Summerleaze Holdings last year and has now gifted it to Lavell’s Wetland Trust. This is a key step in fulfilling the Trust’s vision of a protected wetland corridor through the lower Loddon valley. Owning the lake gives LWT the confidence to invest in extensive wetland habitat creation around it and in providing members with more facilities to see and enjoy nature there.
We aim to start the wetland creation work later this year and hope to be able, in a few years, to add a second hide to view the new habitats. To bring this to fruition, the Trust will be calling on its members to join in work parties and to help with fundraising.About this more anon!
