Newnham nursery school had a wonderful nature walk in Paradise Nature reserve on a lovely sunny autumnal morning this November. The children were very inquisitive about leaves,ducks and sticks! The best part was probably the puddles where their wellies proved invaluable. It was lovely to see how being outside was so completely absorbing for them.

It was agreat day when volunteers gathered to begin the planting of the new reed bed at Logan's Meadow.
The ground was tougher than expected but with real enthusiasm and determination the common reeds, sedge, flag iris, purple loosestrife and marsh marigold were all given their place.
Everybody was excited by the prospect of watching this site develop knowing they were a vital part in it's creation.

Clearing at least a third of the vegetation is an essential part of pond management and this was triumphantly achieved!
