As a proud corporate sponsor of Somerset Wildlife Trust we are thrilled that they are celebrating their 50 year mile stone this year, supporting nature conservations across Somerset.

In a letter received from the trust thanking us for continued support over the years, Emma Gill, Marketing Manager reflects on what has been achieved over the past 50 years. “It is thanks to corporate and public support that Somerset remains one of the most wildlife-rich places in the UK” she writes.  “As spring gets into its stride there is nowhere better to be than the county’s beautiful woodlands as the first flush of spring flowers heralds the sights, scents, beauty and warmth of summer to come”.

Some of the projects that have seen positive changes are the recovery of otters and bittern on the important Somerset Levels and increased numbers of the large blue butterfly on the Polden Hills, to name a few.

Notaro Care Homes have always supported conservation around its homes and continue to do so. Over the years we have installed a number of bird, bat and owl boxes around La Fontana, Martock and Immacolata House, Langport. A while back local’s schools from Langport were invited to build bird boxes at Immacolata House which have been installed around the grounds since. We are proudly one of a few health care providers with 2 petting farms, housing alpacas, chickens, rabbits, snakes, chinchilla’s, degu’s, frogs, rats, hamsters and a variety of birds. It is vitally important for our residents to have contact with animals so having them so close is wonderful and a joy that everyone living in and visiting a Notaro Care Home can experience.

Congratulations Somerset Wildlife Trust on your 50th Anniversary, keep up the fantastic work that you do.
