Sheep to return to nature reserve

Sheep will be returning to West Park nature reserve this week.

They will be grazing in a set area – residents and dog walkers can still visit the nature reserve as usual but while near the sheep, dogs should be kept on leads and children should be supervised as there will be an electric fence surrounding the sheep.

Neal, the Town Council’s Ranger, said: “Without the sheep grazing the area each year we would face a much bigger challenge to keep the West Park Local Nature Reserve in good condition for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.”
