New Conservation Group Funding and Website

The CVCG has won a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to improve and restore grassland in the Reserve, a project called Flowers in the Vale. The bid was made on our behalf through Gateshead Council.

The new Conservation Group website has been created to satisfy one of the grant conditions, namely to make information about the Reserve and the Group’s activities more widely available.
