WILDLIFE at an important local nature spot can now flourish thanks to a new partnership project to improve conditions.Fremington Local Nature Reserve has received a grant for almost £8,000 to fence off an area of wet marsh for grazing cattle.North Devon Council has been working with North Devon Coast & Countryside (NDCCS) to install the fencing, which will enable light summer grazing and improve wildlife interest in the area.The project has received £6,793 from the SITA Trust, through the Landfill Communities Fund and a further £1,000 from the Northern Devon Coast & Countryside's grazing marsh project.Several acres of wet marsh on the reserve have now been fenced off and cows will be able to graze there from spring next year.If you would like to get involved in environmental projects at Fremington nature reserve contact the North Devon Council Parks team on 01271 388326 parks@northdevon.gov.uk or Tom Hynes at NDCCS on 01237 423655.
