New Wildlife Guardian - Langwith Lodge
Tuesday 13th October
The newest member of our successful Wildlife Guardian corporate support scheme is local residential home, Langwith Lodge.
Langwith Lodge is a 54 bed period residence located on the edge of the village of Nether Langwith, seven miles north of Mansfield on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border. Set within 8 acres of its own grounds, Langwith Lodge is surrounded by unspoilt wooded countryside and its own lake.
Langwith Lodge has already started to build a relationship with the NWT Mansfield and Ashfield local group, who attended the recent Summer Fayre held at the home. As well as joining as Wildlife Guardians, Langwith Lodge are also funding work to install bird and bat boxes, renovate an old orchard and develop their own Blue Butterfly meadow, all of which will be facilitated by our conservation officer Andy Lowe with help from the local group volunteers.
Lynn Gedling, Home Manager, stated “We are delighted to support the work of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust as a Wildlife Guardian. We hope to be able to develop our relationship with the Trust over the forthcoming years as we have ambitious plans to develop our grounds as a haven for wildlife and enhance the environment for both our residents and visitors to Langwith Lodge”.
On the 5th December Andy Lowe will be helping the residents take part in the BBC Breathing Places “Tree O’clock” project which aims to set a Guinness World Record for the most trees planted in an hour. Click here to find out more about this project.
