Marchwiel's Nature Reserve
It is sad to see such vandalism to Marchwiel's Nature Reserve.
This facility is maintained and paid for by the residents of Marchwiel in their Precept for the whole community to enjoy. You are so lucky to have this facility in your village.
It is apparent that some are spoiling it for others. The newly fitted viewing screen has been severely vandalised and boardwalks have been burnt from attempted fires. Some youths have been seen congregating there drinking & discarding their rubbish in the ponds.
This is YOUR Nature Reserve so if anyone hears or is aware of anything untoward occurring, please ring the Police on 101 or contact a Community Councillor to inform them.
passing them on to the police.
Marchwiel's Nature Reserve - continues to be restored and updated. New information boards are almost complete which will inform you of the wildlife and plants living on site. A viewing platform will allow you to view birds at a closer distance. A Kingfisher pole is to be erected in the middle of the main pond so you might be lucky enough to be able to see a Kingfisher close up.
Completion of this work has and is delayed due to material costs increasing and the need to obtain new quotes. The boardwalks and kickboards have been repaired/replaced. Members are hoping to host an event where the Ranger would be present to give tours and explain what we have present.
