What a difference a day makes: Wates helps SWT improve its teaching facilities
An army of sixty staff from Wates, the Surrey based construction company, has helped Surrey Wildlife Trust (SWT) improve its Educational Nature Reserves at Nower Wood (near Leatherhead) and Bay Pond (near Godstone).
The teams soon set to work re-siting a bird hide from Nower Wood to Bay Pond and stormed through a long list of invaluable works to the reserves and the buildings – for which they kindly provided the material - including electrical wiring and the installation of gutters, cladding and security measures for a solar panel that had suffered vandalism in the past. The improved facilities will enhance the experience of the 1,800 students, who come to Bay Pond each year to learn about wildlife.
Roger Granby, SWT Reserve Manager, said: “A visit from Wates is a big day for Surrey Wildlife Trust’s Educational Department, all those little – and not so little – jobs that we would do, if we only had the time, have been done, providing an even better experience for our school groups.”
Wates is a very supportive Gold Partner of SWT, having helped with conservation work and maintenance of offices at Norbury Park, as well as creating a new pond at Nower Wood.
