What's new

Donnington Day 2019 - Saturday 29 June

A whole host of local organisations will take part in a fete for all the family at the Rec. Ground on Saturday 29th June 2019.

There will be children's events, stalls and music, including information on the green spaces at Meadow Lane Nature Park and Aston’s Eyot Nature Park.

We are looking for volunteers to help us with the event. Also too if you are a member of a local organisation and would like to take part. Our next Donnington Day planning meeting will be at 7pm on Monday 4 March at Donnington Community Centre. For more information, contact DTRA.

More trees for the nature reserve

February 16th 2019

Thanks to everyone who came along to our tree-planting work party today. We planted new trees, worked hard and ate home-baked cake brought out to us on the reserve! A real community effort. Can't wait to see the apple blossom in the Spring.

Computer club on the move

February 2019

The Over 50s group are developing a community outreach project with volunteers reaching out to older, vulnerable residents in their own homes or in extra care homes such as those in Remy & Lucas Place, George Moore Close and Rosemary Court. This will be linked to our weekly Computer Club sessions in Donnington Community Centre every Tuesday 11.30am to 1pm, organised by David Newman and Ann Clark. More volunteers are will be needed to support this project.

The nature reserve that nobody knows about!

January 2019

I’ve lived in Donnington for 2 years now but it wasn’t till I was cycling around last winter that I discovered the little gem that is Meadow Lane Nature Park. It’s tiny, secluded and peaceful, with meandering paths and dens in the bushes going down to the river. A perfect place for a picnic watching the boats go by.

To spread the word we formed a Friends group. Find out what’s going on at the Nature Park by going to our Facebook page Friends of Meadow Lane Nature Park; or email me suer1953@yahoo.co.uk and I’ll put you on the email group to let you know what’s happening.
