Phil Clark, Cambridgeshire’s community greenspaces manager, hopes to obtain grants to provide training for volunteers and install facilities to allow more access to the reserve for disabled people.

The Rings End Reserve is the site of the former March to Spalding railway line, which closed in the 1980s.

The disused railway embankment and surrounding land was purchased by Cambridgeshire County Council in 1992.

In January 2013, the Friends of Rings End Nature Reserve group was formed to maintain and promote the reserve, which hosts wildflower walks, wild play, pond dipping, dragonfly walks and dawn chorus walks.

More information about volunteering is available from the Friends of Rings End website or by contacting 01223 715686

The March Society’s next event is a talk by Quinton Carroll, senior Cambridgeshire archaeologist, whose talk “The Civil War in Cambridgeshire” will include the Sconce in March.

The talk takes place on Wednesday, February 9 at 7pm in March Library.

Members £1.50, non-members £2.50.
