Volunteer Training Centre boost from the Melton

Building work on our new Volunteer Training Centre at Rutland Water Nature Reserve is progressing well, and due for completion in early summer.

The Wild Lives at Rutland Water Appeal has received a substantial boost with a donation of £15,000 from the Melton Building Society.  The donation will enable the Trust to complete construction of the first floor meeting area in the Volunteer Training Centre with stunning views over the adjacent shallow water Lagoon 4.

A message from our Patron, Sir David Attenborough:

“This exciting project will enable skilled volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to safeguard precious wildlife at Rutland Water and other important nature reserves into the future. Please join me in supporting the appeal.”
