Lottery Award

The Volunteer Group who help to maintain Conigre Mead Nature Reserve in Melksham, which is owned by the Wiltshire wildlife Trust, Have been awarded a BIg Lottery Grant of £47710 for works to improve the reserve. 

This work include new surfaces to paths, new gates, new notice and information boards, and new seats.  It will be carried out during the next few months and will be finished by June 2012.

The work will make the reserve more accessible and friendly to all users, particularly those with disabilities.  Wheelchair and buggy users will be able to use the reserve all year round.

Seats will be installed suitable for all ages and will be useful for school groups and others.

There will be up-to-date and seasonal information about the site and its wildlife.
