Julie Emmerson - greatly missed


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a very much loved committee member and our treasurer, Julie Emmerson, beloved wife of Nigel, who passed away in April 2022 after a very short illness.

Julie was a fount of all knowledge when it came to the wildlife around us, and was a very valued member of the committee.

She will be sadly missed, including her fun loving ways, her sense of humour and her sharp wit.

She will stay forever in our hearts and thoughts. Her legacy will live on.

Reminder


The Wildlife Area is an ideal place for families to visit and have picnics. Running a wildlife area inevitably involves a delicate balance of priorities - protecting and encouraging wildlife and also providing an area which gives pleasure to visitors and residents alike. Most of these are reflected in our Fox Corner Country Code.

Dogs are a particular issue. If uncontrolled, they can alarm wildlife, disturb nests and leave unwelcome excrement anywhere on the site. Groups of children are encouraged to visit to enjoy pond-dipping and mini-beast hunts. For their sake, it is vital that they do not come into contact with the results of dog-fouling. At one stage, we felt that it would be a good idea to ban dogs altogether but after representations from local people, agreed that they could be allowed but strictly only on leads.

We respectfully, but firmly, ask you to abide by this particular rule.
