Ivi Szaboova from SVP said: "Volunteers built a wetland area on the site to create a brand new habitat for marginal plants as well as helping amphibians like ‘little dragons’, and newts and reptiles like grass snakes."
There were also lots of hands-on activities for children, free stickers, birdsong CDs and booklets about wildlife available at the evnt on Sunday June 6th.
The Town Council has just provided Stroud Valleys Project with a grant of £2,500 to run a series of work sessions with local residents on two of our other green spaces in the coming year: The Trinity Pocket Park and Summer Crescent.
