Wildlife in West Bromwich
Published on 2nd May 2012
A West Bromwich nature reserve has issued a call for more volunteers to help out.
It has come from members of the Sot's Hole Nature Reserve off Dagger Lane which stands on the edge of the Sandwell Valley Country Park.
They are looking for volunteers who have a little spare time and who have an interest in nature and wildlife.
Jo Miskin, projects & community liaison officer, said: "It's a fantastic area of very old woodland and is a great place to start a visit to the Country Park.
"The Friends of Sot's Hole have worked hard in recent years, along with Sandwell Council, to make the nature reserve a welcoming place for both visitors and wildlife."
This year, there will be a number of opportunities for you to help out too.
There are a number of practical projects being carried out where extra help would be welcome, and you don't need any experience as training is offered to anyone who needs it. All you need to bring is a pair of strong shoes or boots.
"The friends' group is also organising a number of events in Sot's Hole, so if you don't fancy the practical side, why not help with our event planning?
"We need helping hands to show visitors around the reserve, provide help on our information stand, give out leaflets, and all sorts of things," said Peter Ward, group treasurer.
The next meeting will be held at Sandwell Park Farm Visitor Centre, Salters Lane, West Bromwich, B71 4BG, at 10am on Tuesday May 8.
Anyone interested is invited to just turn up or they can ring Jo Miskin on 0121 553 0220 for more information.
