Charity appeal for donations to help pay for refurbishment of steps at Netherfield Lagoons


A charity that manages a nature reserve at Netherfield is appealing for donations to help pay for the refurbishment of stairs at the popular site.

Gedling Conservation Trust, who run Netherfield Lagoons, launched the appeal on their Facebook page.

They hope to raise enough funds to replace stairs near the Ouse Dyke entrance to the site.


The Trust posted: “Those of you who visit the site may have noticed that both sets of steps require refurbishment.

“Ideally, we would like to replace them all using recycled plastic boards which require no maintenance and are sustainable (similar material to the benches at the site).

“Not only do the steps currently look unsightly, they are clearly a safety concern. It’s really important to us that the lagoons are safely accessible for everyone so we would like to start work as soon as possible.

“We are seeking donations, big or small, to help with the cost of this work.”

The Trust, which relies on public support to carry out work at the Lagoons, estimate that it will cost around £850 to replace the stairs.

Those wanting to donate can make a payment online via the following link:
