A GROUP of volunteers dedicated to maintaining a Nailsea nature reserve is on the lookout for more helpers.

Stockway North Nature Reserve welcomed a record number of visitors last year with a number of organised visits from school pupils in the town.

They took part in activities including pond dipping, leaf rubbing, plant identification and bird spotting.

As a result of this success, more volunteers are now needed to help host open days and school visits throughout this year.

Work carried out by the current group of helpers has also included contributing to the wildlife badges of Girls' Brigade members.

Studies are carried out to monitor the insects in the reserve, a number of new habitats have been introduced and bird boxes are kept topped up with feed to encourage birds to the reserve.

Anyone interested in helping should call Andrew Town on 01275 858064 or Pat Robinson on 854628.
