Friends Group Awarded £1000


The Friends of Sconce and Devon Park have received a check for £1000 from Newark and Sherwood homes following a successful application. The money will go towards paying for a new interactive nature trail around the park.

The aim of the project is to encourage children and adults from local communities to look, engage and understand the wildlife contained within the largest park in Newark.The park consists of varied habitats which are home to many species of native british wildlife and migratory birds. The trail will follow these diverse habitats and have an interpretation point at each area. The interpretation board will contain small snippets of information about the varied species in each location along with pictures encouraging the children to see if they can spot some of the wildlife. A brass rubbing plaque will be attached to each board so people can take a rubbing and collect these as they follow the trail.
