Hampshire & IW Wildlife Trust appeal reaches £245K target

Isle of Wight holiday cottagesIn October the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust launched an appeal to buy Parsonage Farm & Hill Heath. This land forms a rich tapestry of habitats on the Eastern Yar, from ancient woodland & river to grazed pasture & marshland. The sites are perfectly placed to extend existing Wildlife Trust nature reserve Martin’s Wood. We are delighted to learn today that the target of £245,000 has been reached and both pieces of land have been purchased. Plans are now underway so watch this space!
