The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

WILDLIFE lovers can find out how they can help bring a na­ture re­serve back to its for­mer glory.

A meet­ing is be­ing held at Fen­land Hall, March, about the Rings End Na­ture Re­serve in the town at 7pm on Tues­day, May 22.

The meet­ing has been called af­ter a friends’ group was set up to look af­ter the re­serve.

The plan­ning event will seek the views and ideas of peo­ple about how the site is cur­rently man­aged, their vi­sion of how it could be man­aged in the fu­ture and what the ob­jec­tives of the friends’ group should be.

If pos­si­ble the event will also look into form­ing a com­mit­tee for the friends’ group.

Coun­cil­lor Mac Mcguire, deputy leader for Cam­bridgeshire County Coun­cil and cabi­net mem­ber for com­mu­nity en­gage­ment, said: “Lo­cal na­ture re­serves are not only vi­tal to pre­serve the unique en­vi­ron­ment we have in Cam­bridgeshire but en­cour­age fam­i­lies to be­come fit and healthy by get­ting out and about.

“The plan­ning event will seek the views and ideas of lo­cal peo­ple about how the site is cur­rently man­aged as well as their vi­sion of how it could be man­aged in the fu­ture and what the ob­jec­tives of the friends’ group might be.

“The views of lo­cal peo­ple re­ally count in mak­ing sure these ex­tremely im­por­tant ar­eas are pro­tected for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.”
