Lancashire Wildlife Trust has received a £500 donation from our regional business Taylor Wimpey Manchester, to help maintain its Kingfisher Trail.

The Kingfisher Trail, which runs through Bolton just a short distance from our Spinning Green at Crompton Village development, relies heavily on volunteers and donations to help keep the nature reserve running.

Stephen Cartwright, industrial wildlife project officer at Lancashire Wildlife Trust, explains: “The Kingfisher Trail is 13 miles long and popular with walkers. It is part of Seven Acres Nature Reserve and was originally set up in the 1970s.

“The area was damaged during the Industrial Revolution and ever since, our aim has been to improve, promote, celebrate and engage people with this historical trail.

“Taylor Wimpey’s donation will make a huge difference to the project and we cannot thank them enough for this support.”

The Kingfisher Trail is home to a number of species including deer, rabbits, peacock butterflies and kingfishers.

Chloe Dunn, Associate Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, comments: “Seven Acres is a beautiful nature reserve and the Kingfisher Trail is a great historical path, so we’re keen to do everything we can to help protect and preserve it.

“Our Spinning Green at Crompton Village development neighbours the park so we understand how important it is to the local community.”

Spinning Green at Crompton Village currently offers a choice of two, three and four-bedroom properties.
