A volunteer group is preparing to host a ceilidh in June to raise funds for a nature reserve in Cockermouth.

The event is organised by the Friends of Dubwath Silver Meadows, who have looked after Dubwath Silver Meadows since 2011.

The group organises different events during the year, including plant and ecology walks, bird identification walks, and volunteering opportunities.

Located off the A66, the seven-hectare wetland is a haven for flora and fauna.

Its terrain, with recycled plastic boardwalks, caters to all age groups and abilities. 

Visit the Friends of Dubwath Silver Meadows' website -  www.dubwathsilvermeadows.org.uk - for more information about the venue's facilities.

The Friends also have a long-term project in progress: a hedgerow planting initiative.

Any funds raised from the ceilidh event will contribute towards the ongoing upkeep of the reserve.

The Travelling Light band will provide the music at the event, Friday, June 21, starting at 7pm, at Christ Church, an Anglican church in Cockermouth.
