An Ellesmere Port based Community Group called Friends Of Rivacre Valley have just been awarded £12,000 in the first round of
“Bags of Help” funding from TESCO

The group have been formed for less than 12 months and will use this award to improve the Rivacre Valley Local Nature Reserve which covers 300 acres of beautiful land

The funding will be used to encourage more families, walkers and cyclists to visit Rivacre Valley for picnics, or just to enjoy the tranquillity and wildlife that can be observed in the area.

Improvements will include:
  • Replacement and new benches
  • Replacement and additional picnic benches
  • Improved signage
  • Establish a new corn meadow to attract butterflies and pollinating insects
  • New bird feeders and feeder stations
  • Groundwork to protect or improve bio diversity
The Friends Of Rivacre Valley Group want residents and visitors to discover and enjoy the beauty of Ellesmere Ports “Jewel in the Crown”
otherwise known as Rivacre Valley Nature Reserve  

The Friends Of Rivacre Valley Group would like to thank all residents and visitors who shop at Tesco who took the time to vote for this local project.
