After an excellent first two days and having reached Hamilton in her first update, the schedule for day 3 of Francesca’s #CycleForNature was packed with visits to local projects that SNH supports. Let’s hear how the rest of the week went!
After a discussion with staff in the Hamilton office, four of us set off to the nearby Chatelherault Country Park where SNH works with South Lanarkshire Council and the Clyde and Avon Valleys Landscape Partnership to enhance the value of the park for local residents and visitors. This includes path restoration, supporting volunteers, education and enhancing the Park’s biodiversity. We went on quite a long walk (this was risking becoming a duathlon!), ably led by Malcolm Muir of South Lanarkshire Council, to see all that the park has to offer and the on-going work.
