Yellow plaque honour for nature reserve
2:00pm Thursday 13th September 2012 in News
A NATURE reserve in Oxfordshire has become one of the first in the UK to be awarded a yellow plaque.
The plaque is in honour of Vera Paul who left a gift to the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust in her will.
Her legacy helps the trust maintain the Warburg Nature Reserve, east of Wallingford, in the Chiltern Hills.
The Remember A Charity yellow plaques scheme was launched this week with 15 being unveiled around the country.
George Murray, of the wildlife trust, said: “Legacies enable us to care for our reserves, to extend them and to save habitats under threat. They can be used to inspire the next generation and to show them the wonders of wildlife in their own neighbourhood.”
