Westbury Banks Nature Reserve
Project Category: Other
The Westbury Banks Nature Reserve is located on Westbury Avenue N22, a short walk from Turnpike Lane tube station.
The site where the Westbury Banks Nature Reserve was derelict land and was a flytipping hotspot. In April 2017, GrowN22 began planning activities to cleanse the site of litter, glass and needles. Since June 2017, the local resident volunteers have spent over 350 hours at the reserve, taking part in a number of activities. Weve removed over 150 bags of rubbish!
The Westbury Banks Nature Reserve was recently awarded Level 2 in Improving from the RHS; Britain in Bloom contest and today, secured funding from the Groundwork Our Space Award!
With this funding, and over the next three months the following projects will be taking place at the reserve:
Installation of a Wildlife Pond with gabion retention walls
Large letters spelling out the ‘Westbury Banks Nature Reserve’ for the blue fence
Water collection and retention system
Installation of wildlife cameras to capture wild life and flytippers!
We hope you can join us at our Winter workshop!
