Wild about Worcester? Follow the natural path

Worcester Editorial 4th Mar, 2023   0

A NEW wildlife corridor for the city was unveiled by dedicated campaigners at Worcester Bridge.

Nature lovers were able to take their first steps on the Wild about Worcester Way (WaWW) last Saturday (February 25).

Zoe Hickman, Worcester Environmental Group chair of trustees and Steve Shaw, chair of the Wild about Worcester Way steering committee placed the first way markers for the Wild about Worcester Way at Worcester Bridge.”

“This is a very exciting project for Worcester and I’m delighted to play a part in it,” Steve said.

Over the next 11 weeks, further way markers will be placed all the way around the twelve-mile route.

Some 30 of the posts will contain carvings of native wildlife species, based on images drawn by sixty winners of a primary school art project.

Supported by Worcester City Council and Worcestershire County Council, WaWW connects fifteen green spaces on a circular route around the city.

The grand opening of the project will be held on May 13, when the Mayor of Worcester will be cutting the ribbon at Worcester Woods Country Park.
