Help local community charities, like Westland Countryside Stewards, by shopping at Co-op.
Kilkhampton based nature conservation charity, Westland Countryside Stewards, has been selected for the Co-op Local Community Fund. Since September 2016, Co-op Members have raised £20 million for thousands of local projects that benefit communities across the UK.
Funds raised will help encourage native species on Kilkhampton Common and promote a diversity of wildlife and habitats for visitors to enjoy.
A big thank you to everyone who attended our two guided walks of Kilkhampton Common on June 11th and 16th.
The guided walk allowed both new visitors and familiar faces a chance to discover the wildlife on the common, and learn more about Westland Countryside Stewards.
Reconnecting with local nature
Our charity aim is to reconnect people with local nature. We hope this has encouraged those who attended to visit the Common again, or just get out and enjoy nature on your doorstep.
A circular walk of the Common was completed, finishing at the lower pond. Here, children (and adults) were able to get involved in pond dipping.
If you were unable to attend, remember, the common is open all hours, every day for you to enjoy.
Westland Countryside Stewards will have a table at the Kilkhampton Fete on 1st July. Please, stop by and say hello.
