Intertidal Wildlife Sweep Sunday 7th September

Steart Marshes Project – Breach of the River Parrett

As you are all aware the breach is fast approaching and in preparation  for the incoming tide we need to sweep the entire intertidal area, working from North to South. This is to ensure we flush out as many animals as we can before the sea spills up over the main creek into the surrounding fields.

We are hoping to do the sweep with as many local residents that are keen to get involved. Continue reading

Summer on the Common

IMG_0538New football nets and a basketball post and net have just been installed on the Common for the start of the school summer holiday by the parish council. We hope young people and perhaps those not so young will enjoy them.

Dog walkers and others are enjoying this lovely piece of land we call the common, which is the gateway to other lovely walks along the river towards Steart and a 3 mile circular walk along the new footpath through Steart Marshes. This is an easy walk and has the advantage of public toilets (on Stert Drove) halfway round. New footpaths will be opening soon with bird hides to help you enjoy the wildlife. For those with restricted mobility why not drive to the official car park on Stert Drove and take advantage of wheelchair friendly access to the marshes.
