Top time at Cromwell Bottom

It's been very nice spending half-term week with my family and a fair chunk of that has been spent at CBNR.  It's been cold and the light has been changeable but I managed to get some nice shots this week.

AVIVA NEWS!


Bums on Seats at the Bottom.......

Here’s some unexpected good news – your votes really did make a difference!
the AVIVA Community Fund got back in touch as one of the winning projects wasn’t able to go ahead. So….. We got our grant after all! Huge thanks to you all, and thanks to AVIVA too.
We are now in the process of finding a supplier for the benches and deciding exactly where to put them.
The committee has some ideas for where they think the benches would be sited, but we’d like to hear your views on this too.
  • Do you have a favourite spot to linger in?
  • Is there a place where you like to stop for a breather?
  • Do your knees need a rest somewhere along your walk?
There will probably be three benches. We can't promise they will go exactly in your preferred places for reasons of practicality and safety, but your ideas will help us make the final decisions. 

You can get in touch via this blog - leave a comment below, or email cromwellbottom@gmail.com or leave a comment on our Facebook page. Also, if you are a Sunday cabin visitor talk to one of the team there and leave your comments.


Many thanks!

At the Viewing Area

A few images from yesterday afternoon.  A dozen or so bullfinch, great tit and blue tit along with long-tailed tit, chaffinch and robin were around for most of the time.  A jay put in a very quick visit, too.
