Welcome to the Friends of Chellaston Brickworks

Local Nature Reserve

The “Friends” are a small group of volunteers who carry out regular work parties to help maintain and enhance this lovely area. Some of the tasks already undertaken have resulted in an increase in the variety of butterflies, amphibians and wild flowers present on the reserve.

Our main aims are to:-
• Maintain and enhance the reserve.
• Protect this vital green space for our local community.
• Provide the correct habitat to encourage a wider range of species.
• Raise awareness of the site
• Provide the opportunity to ‘get involved’.

We are always eager to meet new “Friends” and everyone is welcome to come along regardless of age, ability or knowledge.




Latest News
We are delighted to say that for the third year running the reserve has been awarded a Community Green Flag. The judge gave really positive feed back and was impressed with how good the reserve was looking. It is always a real boost to have our work praised, it makes all the cold, wet task sessions worthwhile.

One of the things the judges look out for is litter and a lot of effort had gone in to trying to ensure that everywhere was clear of rubbish. We know of several local residents and dog walkers, who litter pick as they walk the reserve, their help is invaluable and greatly appreciated. Thanks to you all.
