Group established to promote conservation in Gaywood Valley

For the past two years, around 25 local volunteers have been working with the Norfolk Wildlife Trust on a Living Landscape project to enhance the area’s environment.

That work is now being handed over to the new Gaywood Valley Conservation Group (GVCC), which was launched on Monday and is now appealing for new recruits to sign up.

Committee member Alistair Milner said the aims of the new group were just the same as those of their predecessors.

He said: “We want to conserve and encourage wildlife and promote practical conservation for the benefit of the public. The group also aims to to educate people, and to improve the health and 
wellbeing of the local 
community.”

The new group will meet weekly, beginning this Monday, October 5, from 9.30am at the River Lane car park.

Officials plan to continue working with organisations including the Wildlife Trust, West Norfolk Council and other conservation bodies.
