Hi, we are members of the Arncroach and Carnbee Community Development Trust. We are local residents working together with, and for the benefit of, our local community and visitors from the wider area.
What we do
Through our activities we aim to:
- Increase a sense of community
- Help to improve the physical and mental well being of our residents and visitors
- Preserve and maintain our local heritage
- Increase access to the surrounding countryside
Why a crowdfunder?
Our group aims to create a small nature reserve which will follow the course of the Dreel Burn from opposite Dreel House, up the gully to where it meets with the Gillingshill Nature Reserve.
Funding permitting, we'd like to replace the current derelict steps, lay out a gravel path and install seating, but we need funds to do it.
Volunteers from our Local Young Farmers Group have already helped us start the process by clearing a path through the undergrowth, but we now need your assistance to complete the project.
Education and biodiversity
We also want to increase the educational aspect of the reserve by the use of discreetly placed notice boards, explaining the wide variety of wildlife that visitors may come across.
And to help encourage the biodiversity of the wildlife, we will place nesting and insect boxes throughout both of the reserves.
Please help us to help nature
We do hope you will be able to help us! Take a look at our rewards and pledge on your favourite one, or you can simply donate an amount of your own choosing.
And if you can share our project with your friends and family, that would also be a huge help (you can even use the social media icons on this page to share it now!)
Once the work is completed we look forward to you being able to come and experience the peace and quiet, and enjoy the spectacle of watching the wildlife within the Dreelside nature reserve!
Thank you from all at the Arncroach and Carnbee Community Development Trust.
