Funded by players of the National Lottery via a grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the ‘Catch my Drift’ project is set to improve biodiversity and reconnect people with nature at the wildlife charity’s 185-hectare East Chevington reserve on Druridge Bay.

As part of the year-long Development Phase, the ‘Catch my Drift’ team will be hosting a number of events where members of the public can share their thoughts on why the site is important to them and any stories they may have about its heritage.

Speaking about the project, Elaine More, Northumberland Wildlife Trust’s Druridge Bay Development Manager said: “The East Chevington reserve has the potential to be an amazing site for people and wildlife, so we would love to meet people, and especially local people, who may have thoughts on how the reserve could be improved or have stories to tell about the area’s heritage..

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any ideas to share, still come along and say hello.”
