the Autumn of 2008
Wolvey Parish Council and a team of enthusiastic local volunteers
were engaged in a project to construct a boardwalk through the Wolvey
198 metre Boardwalk was built entirely of
Recycled Plastic Materials supplied by SECURE-A-FIELD of Coventry, designed & Constructed by the Wolvey Environmental Group
and local Volunteers.
Recycled plastic has the advantage that it is long-lasting, requires little
maintenance and also that it does not need to be treated with preservatives
which could leach into the soil of this fragile environment.
The parish council was fortunate enough to receive funding of £10,000 from the BBC Breathing Places and also £10,000 from the Rugby Borough Council Rural Development Fund to provide a boardwalk allowing access through the site for everyone.
