A new woodland path has been unveiled – meaning that a popular wildlife site is now fully open and can be enjoyed by all.
The path at the eastern end of the Bonds Meadow wildlife area in Oulton Broad was officially opened by keen supporters Len Jacklin and Jane Murray yesterday (April 18).
Praise was given to all the Bonds Meadow volunteers, who over more than 30 years have made the site the glorious place it is today. Particular thanks were given to the present work party who worked so hard to clear rubbish and undergrowth to reveal the beautiful mature woodland, which can now be enjoyed by everyone. A spokesman for the Bonds Meadow Community Association said: 'The whole of the Bonds Meadow site is now open to the public. After the path was declared open, members of the public were given a short guided walk through the eastern woods and everyone enjoyed refreshments.'
The group would also like to thank Peter Ross, of Suffolk Coastal Norse, for his advice and use of equipment as well as CR Hales and EE Green, who both supplied skips free of charge so the rubbish could be cleared.
'Bonds Meadow was very pleased and proud to recently receive an outstanding award by Anglia in Bloom,' the spokesman added. 'We have been fortunate that we have been able to expand our very dedicated work party, which is why we have achieved so much.
