Installation of gate on small meadow

Our latest project has been completed with the installation of a pedestrian gate, purchased with the aid of a grant from Cheadle Town Council, in the newly planted hedge line. This will help improve access to the smaller wildflower meadow on the nature reserve. The pedestrian gate was installed by volunteers from our group a few weeks after the planting of the hedge .

The whips planted along the hedge line in February have all taken and are now starting to grow, ultimately providing valuable habitat for birds, small mammals, bees and other insects.
