Council backs the work of Cramlington’s squirrel supporters
August 16, 2022
Cramlington Town Council is delighted to support the work of Cramlington and District Red Squirrel group by giving them a donation of £780 from the Community Chest Fund.
Group members Richie Redshaw and Helen Hindson are seen with the council’s Community and Youth Manager Maggie Martin who said “The work this group does is vital to protect the future of red squirrels in the local environment.”
“The volunteers work so hard to aid the populations of the small groups of native red squirrels as they battle for survival against the invasive grey squirrels. This donation is a demonstration of the council’s continued support for the work they do.”
