Funds boost for nature volunteers

Volunteer conservationists received a funding boost to help make local beauty spots more child friendly.

Maun Conservation Group members collected the £450 award from The Mansfield Building Society’s Community Support Scheme towards the cost of installing and upgrading signs at Quarry Lane and Oakham local nature reserves. It follows feedback from young visitors that signs should be lower and have more pictures of wildlife on them.
