Bat detectors, insect boxes and binoculars are just some of the new equipment that volunteers can use when they take part in events run by Stroud Valleys Project thanks to a  £10,000 grant from the Awards for All.

Director of projects Clare Mahdiyone said: “ Thanks to Awards for All we are  now much better equipped for volunteers who help us with vital projects and for local people who come and take part in our walks and surveys.

Not only do we have bat detectors, binoculars for children and adults, a sound recorder , insect boxes, pond dipping nets and lots of new reference books but we were also able to buy a gazebo – this will be used as an outdoor exhibition space to help us take  our information  to local events.”

A small part of the grant also helped SVP put on a special learning event and 21st birthday celebration at Slimbridge Wildlife and Wetlands Trust in June where volunteers took part in a kayak safari, went bird watching or on a guided walk round the reserve.

“Another section of the grant will also go towards helping us redesign our website and update our publicity so people know more about who we are and what we do,” said Clare.
