Shapwick Moor’s new helper

Shapwick Moor All Terrain John Deere Gator


The Hawk & Owl Trust’s Shapwick Moor is the newest nature reserve in the Avalon Marshes. These former arable fields are being transformed into a haven for wildlife through the hard work of staff and volunteers. The trust recently took delivery of an all-terrain vehicle to help them with their work.

“Towards the end of November we were very excited to take delivery of our very own All Terrain John Deere Gator. Alan and Sylvia Williams, two incredibly generous Hawk and Owl Trust members from Derbyshire donated funds for us to purchase this much needed item after meeting with us at the recent AGM at Sculthorpe in October 2015.

This vehicle will be a major resource for the reserve and will be in use on a daily basis. In the short term, it will be stored in our container – it just fits in after some major reorganisation! Eventually it will ‘live’ in our new building that will replace the container next year. There was an official handing over of the vehicle by Alan and Sylvia to Phil Holms on Thursday 3rd December.”
