    A new project in our area!

    The Avon Wildlife Trust has launched a new project in our area!
    Over the past few weeks the new Somer Valley Community Organiser at the Trust has met with locals in Paulton to discuss what matters most to them and hear about their nature driven dreams. The rep, ‘Rhea says, ‘I had a fantastic time joining the Somersetshire Coal Canal Society on a Paulton work day. The project is based in a stunning and biodiverse location, with rich history and a friendly group of volunteers, plus cakes in the tea-break- what’s not to love!The Community Library in Paulton was also both heart-warming to visit. ‘
    Nextdoor Nature is a national campaign by The Wildlife Trusts as part of Team Wilder’s community-led action for nature’s recovery.  The project aims to raise understanding about the urgent need for change, and to recognise individuals and communities’ own roles in making that change happen. They want to support local people in the projects they want to make happenFind out more:- somervalleyrediscovered.co.uk/nextdoor-nature-somer-valley-project/
