Recent developments at a popular county wildlife area have been showcased to an MP.

Waveney MP Peter Aldous visited Bonds Meadow wildlife area in Oulton Broad last week. He met the Bonds Meadow work party, who turn up every Tuesday to weed, cut back, pick litter, lay pathways and anything else which needs doing to maintain this beautiful wildlife area.

Mr Aldous was also shown the new Eastern Woods Pathway, which the work party created last winter – replacing an impenetrable jungle of rubbish and undergrowth. It is now mature woodland with flowers and wildlife, which is already well-used and appreciated by local residents.

A spokesman for Bonds Meadow Community Association said: 'It was necessary for Peter to put his wellies on because, in spite of the improvement in the weather, the main footpath is still a sea of churned up mud owing to essential pipe-laying work being carried out under the footpath on behalf of Persimmon Homes, who have, however, promised reinstatement when they have completed their work.

'Bonds Meadow appreciate Peter's support and interest in the work, which keeps Bonds Meadow such a beautiful spot, and we hope to welcome him back this year to see the reinstatement's progress.'
