TRUST AP­PEAL TO EX­TEND LACKFORD LAKES

EADT Suffolk - - Insider's Guide -

In its 30th an­niver­sary year, Suf­folk Wildlife Trust has launched a public ap­peal to raise £200,000 to buy land that would in­crease the size of its Lackford Lakes re­serve near Bury St Ed­munds to 400 acres. The pro­posed 77-acre ex­ten­sion con­tains special Breck­land habi­tat that has re­mained un­touched by agriculture for 25 years. Vet­eran Suf­folk nat­u­ral­ist Bernard Tick­ner has a special affin­ity with Lackford Lakes and has al­ready pledged to make a sub­stan­tial con­tri­bu­tion to the ap­peal.

Do­na­tions to the ap­peal can be made at www.suf­folk­wildlifetrust.org
