A new Pond Dipping Platform, as a part of Attenborough Nature Centre’s 50th anniversary celebrations, has been purchased and installed on time to allow the bird nesting season to begin without disturbance.
The Rotary clubs of Wollaton Park and Sherwood Sunrisers joined forces on a pilot Business Partnership project and in co-operation with the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, who kindly agreed to release employees drawn from their Services Division to undertake the project. Nottinghamshire Social Services provided additional help giving young special needs people an opportunity to get involved in community work.
The Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust oversaw the removal of an old wooden platform and the installation of a new plastic one. The pond dipping platform is an educational facility that is used by many local schoolchildren and youth groups learning about the wildlife living in the water.
