Our aim is to keep the reserve as when humankind lived and worked in the area as an integral part of nature. This small piece of nature in the heart of town is maintained and supported by local volunteers for the good of all who wish to escape or have an interest in the ecological and social history of Oulton Broad.

Why not join us and experience the great outdoors, make new friends, get your hands dirty and play your part in saving the countryside for future generations.

Meadow is undertaken almost entirely by volunteers. The team is small and is in real need of new people to help. If you can give some time, even if it’s only occasionally please contact Peter – 01502 514157   Margaret 01502 584261.

Anglia in Bloom/RHS “It’s Your Neighbourhood” Award

Peter Aldous (Project Manager) and Margaret Martin (Secretary) of the Bonds Meadow Community Association were delighted to receive the Anglia in Bloom/RHS “It’s Your Neighbourhood” Award at Distinction Level for the third year running at the Presentation Evening at Broadlands on 27th November. Tribute was paid to our dedicated work party for all the work they have done in restoring the footpath area which was disrupted by the long-running pipe-laying work and for not giving up!  It’s wonderful to see how good it is looking after such a short time.  The carved log at the Sands Lane entrance which welcomes visitors was also very well received.  We are very proud of the award because it is a recognition of the benefits Bonds Meadow brings to the community as well as recognition of our conservation activities.

We wish to care for the remaining part of what used to be a common since the area was settled. People and their animals used to be part of nature...
