I was delighted to hear the news that £300,000 of funding has been secured for a project on Cleeve Common, which is the largest common in Gloucestershire. The funding is secured by Gloucestershire FWAG (The Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group), Gloucestershire Natural England and the Cleeve Common Board of Conservators - to install a water supply to allow long term grazing management with cattle.
A couple of years ago I worked for FWAG – and I know from experience how difficult it is to put these projects together and to raise the funds. Well done Gloucestershire FWAG!
When you look out of the window of our breakfast room and KS Double en-suite guest room 'Prestbury' you can just see Cleeve Common to the right- approx 1.5 Miles from here and a 1,000 feet climb. A lovely walk (approx. 45 min. to reach the top of Cleeve Hill) to undertake before breakfast!
