Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is the county's largest environmental charity run by local people for the benefit of local wildlife and wildlife habitats. In 2014 we were able to extend Skylarks Nature Reserve, Holme Pierrepont to incorporate a further 36ha, creating the largest nature reserve in Rushcliffe. It includes habitats such as wet grassland, shingle islands and woodland and boasts over 75 species of bird and over the next few months will have 1.5km of accessible paths, viewing screens and interpretation installed, as well as a programme of activities for families, schools and individuals over the summer.

As part of our commitment to enhancing this site we would like, in conjunction with Holme Pierrepont Country Park, to approach Nottingham City Transport with a view to getting the number 11 bus extended to a point close to the reserve entrance. Currently the closest stop for an NCT bus is approximately 1 mile from the reserve entrance. There are bus stops for routes out to Radcliffe and Newark on the A52, however this involves crossing a busy main road at one end of the journey.

At this early stage, we would like to ask a few questions regarding how you travel to the site, or how you would travel to the site if there was a bus available.

* 1. Have you visited Skylarks Nature Reserve before?

* 2. If you answered yes to question 1, please tell us how you travelled to Skylarks.

* 3. If you answered no to question 1, was this due to lack of public transport?
