A big beech tree has fallen across the steps beside the crematorium at the top of the valley and we have received reports of a blockage near the Lime Tree Avenue.
Vinters Valley Nature Reserve is NOT run by any council, but by a group of dedicated local volunteers, who have formed a registered charity called the “Vinters Valley Park Trust”.
To keep the nature reserve open, as a space for the whole community to enjoy we need your money and support.
You can financially support the nature reserve in a number of ways.

The mud and sit from our main site trap north of the lake, along the main valley floor, has been removed from the silt trap today.
The mud and silt has been spread between two bunds beside the silt traps and needs to dry out and become solid, which is likely to take some time (depending on the weather).
The area had been fenced off and warning signs are in place.
However, until further notice and as a safety precaution, all dogs must be kept under full control by putting them on a lead when walking along the adjacent pathway in this area.
