Anglesey Red Squirrel

Dear Wil


Will you please publicise a matter that is of the greatest concern to many people in the Holyhead/Holy Island are of Anglesey.

The Friends of Anglesey Red Squirrels re-introduced red squirrels to Penrhos Nature Reserve (Coastal Park) Holyhead 1n 2007. Now, four years on they are under threat from property developers Land and Lakes Ltd.

The community has used the nature reserve for 40 years. It has provided the community of Holy Island and tourists from all over Britain with the unique experience of been fully immersed in Natural Wales' unspoilt landscape.

It would be devastating for the local community of Holy Island to lose its reserve and catastrophic to the wealth of biodiversity it supports: Bats, red squirrels, butterflys, otters (witnessed by local fishermen),rabbit warrens, woodpeckers, kingfishers,buzzards and all manner of species fit for a paradise.

Support for our campaign has grown through our facebook page,Save penrhos nature reserve'.

We hope you will consider supporting our cause: we have 2 petitions.

Save Penrhos Coastal Park, Holyhead.
by: Charles Smith

I think it is so sad that this area of 'historic' woodland may soon be lost to development. My family and I have known this reserve for over forty years and have seen it grow in environmental importance.

We walked through the reserve last week and the blankets of bluebells and wood garlic are breathtaking and have taken many years to mature.

I urge anyone who is remotely interested to visit the historic stone folly area known as 'Shackelton's Rest' in the next few days to witness the woodland floor in bloom before it is lost.

Indeed, to the unfamiliar, visit all of the Penrhos Park's stone follies, if only to take a final photograph to help record this part of the Island's past. Visit also the brilliant 'duck pond' if you can find it.

Penrhos Coastal Park is probably almost unique in its origins as a 'stately home' coastal garden, now truly naturalised and free to enter.

Please let us not allow apathy and financialy motivated 'smoke and mirrors'to win the day on this one!
