A Birthday Celebration
Twelve months after formalising WFDG, the Group's efforts are rewarded with more funding.
Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB has awarded the Group with just over £4,000 from the Sustainable Development Fund towards saltmarsh restoration on Stage Two of its project.
The saltmarsh is a vital part of this estuary's SSSI and Ramsar status. It forms natural flood defences and attracts many species of wildlife. Areas along Stage Two are severely eroded and so raising them will encourage new vegetation as well as prolong the life of the new river wall.
WFDG Secretary, Janette Brown, congratulates the Group and thanks SCH AONB for its support: “On the anniversary of our ratifying our constitution, 17th April 2014, it’s another good reason to celebrate great team effort – many thanks to you all.”
Happy Birthday WFDG!
