Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust latest to sign up as a North Notts Envoy

The Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust are pleased to become the latest organisation to become a North Notts Envoy. The scheme will unite businesses, organisations and individuals across the area in a powerful network to change perceptions of the area and raise its profile as a great place to work, visit and live. The Wildlife Trust, the county’s largest locally based conservation charity, manages a number of sites in North Nottinghamshire including the Idle Valley Nature, one of the largest nature reserves in the East Midlands.

Speaking about the decision to become an Envoy, Rob Fitzsimons, Wildlife Trust Head of Development said: “We are passionate about the county and with so many of our finest nature reserves being located in North Nottinghamshire we are committed to putting the area on the map. As an organisation that has invested significantly in North Notts and has a tremendous local backing we believe that the Envoys Scheme is a great way to work with like-minded organisations, businesses and individuals.”

Sites cared for by the charity locally include Treswell Wood, one of the finest ancient woodlands in the region; Ashton’s Meadow, a wildflower site selected as the county’s ‘Coronation Meadow’ due to the diversity of its flora and the Idle Valley, a hugely important complex of wetlands and other habitats alongside the River Idle just west of Retford.
