Wiltshire Rural Housing Association is creating a Nature Reserve at Codford.
This is a community project for local people to get involved with and then enjoy.
The community Nature Reserve will give residents the chance to enjoy peace and nature in the middle of a built up housing estate.
Wiltshire Rural Housing Association has worked in partnership with Wiltshire Wildlife Trust to create the Nature Reserve. Funding was obtained from the National Lottery "Awards for All" scheme and also from our own contributions. Selwood Housing Association, which also has homes at Cherry Orchard, has donated towards the re-production of the signs from the children's designs.
Local children have worked in after school clubs to build bird boxes and make signs for the Nature Reserve.
Full story coming soon in the Sustainability Review 2011.
