Residents are being urged to help nurture a Blackpool beauty spot.

A new Friends of Marton Mere group is being formed to support the work currently being undertaken at the nature reserve.

The reserve is undergoing a £368,000 makeover, thanks to Heritage Lottery Fund and The Veolia Environmental Trust.

Improvements being carried out at the site include habitat works, updated paths and signage, bird hides and a new visitor centre which it is hoped will open next month.

The Friends of Marton Mere group will be supporting these improvement works, promoting the site and fund-raising to help make a great nature reserve even better.

The first meeting has already been held but more information is available from Annie Heslop, Marton Mere Project Officer at annie.heslop@blackpool.gov.uk or call 07469 038520.
