    We are delighted to be able to report that we are holding our first traditional first New Year's Day walk around Marks Hill Nature Reserve since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Management work resumed in the reserve in September 2021 and much has been achieved by the dedicated band of volunteers, meadows have been cut, glades have been extended along the footpaths and work is just starting on coppicing in a area of woodland between Gladstone Road and the meadow.  Please come and join us as we take a gentle stroll around the reserve, it's the perfect way to start the year.

    Meet at Delmores car park at 10.am
