Discover the delights of Coombe Brook Valley

PEOPLE are being encouraged to get to know a woodland valley on the edge of Fishponds and Speedwell.

Coombe Brook Valley has a small stream running through and an open meadow area, providing a wildlife haven for badgers, foxes, rabbits and many birds and butterflies.

Volunteer group the Friends of Coombe Brook Valley helps care for the site and is inviting more people to visit and find out more.

The next event held at the nature reserve will help children get to know it better.

On Wednesday October 23, from 2-3.30pm, there will be activities for toddlers including minibeast quests, wild stories and child-led free play. The session is aimed at toddlers aged 2-4 years but younger siblings are also welcome.

Parents are advised to make sure they and their children are dressed for the weather and children are supervised at all times.

Anyone who wants to take part should meet at the far end of Holly Lodge Close at 2pm.

Avon Wildlife Trust has been working to help improve the nature reserve and involve the community more with it as part of its My Wild City project, which has funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

That includes seeking memories and stories about Coombe Brook Valley and finding out more about how people use it and what they would like to see and do there in the future.

Anyone who wants to get in touch should email Hannah at or call 07458 091418.
