Forncett Nature Matters: Connecting Nature in the Forncetts

Written by The Steering Group.

This is the name of a newly formed group which welcomes everyone who cares about the natural world.   Join us and become involved in ensuring that our village enriches and supports nature. Experiencing nature, and working outdoors, helps boost our own physical and mental well-being.

Our vision is to:

  • Provide spaces in which wildlife can flourish.
  • Form wildlife corridors linking habitats to benefit pollinators and other creatures.
  • To do this by restoring or creating habitats in gardens, hedges, ditches, field and roadside verges.
  • Encourage local people to join us in order to collectively improve conditions for the wide and diverse range of wildflowers, insects and other mini-beasts, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals that exist alongside us in the Forncetts.
