In 2012, after the successful transformation of the Lock Garden, HWRG turned its attention the overgrown, boggy field next to it.Why not turn it into a nature area that the whole community can enjoy and which schools could use as an outdoor classroom?Lots of reasons sprang to mind but all of them were pushed aside and on 12 September 2015 Hirst Wood Nature Reserve was officially opened.These links will take you through the story of how it happened.
