The donation covers two signs placed at the north and south entrances of the woodland, which is next to the housebuilder’s new Edwalton Fields location.

David Laight of Bovis Homes; Bill Logan, of the Friends of Sharphill Wood; and Duane Booth and Luke Vernon from signage company Eco Signs, met at the nature reserve, to place the signs.

Bill, secretary of the Friends of Sharphill Wood, said: “This is a terrific investment and we are extremely grateful to Bovis Homes for the signage.

“We work very hard to maintain this beautiful nature reserve, the only woodland in the area, and we welcome the support of Bovis Homes and our many volunteers – we’re always on the look out for more!”

David, associate design and planning director at Bovis Homes, said:

“Sharphill Woods is a historic woodland area, which is very important to residents and an attraction for tourists and visitors to the city,” he said.

“There is a fantastic array of wildlife here and Bovis Homes wants to maintain this nature reserve, through its partnership with the Friends of Sharphill Woods, not only for our residents at Edwalton Fields, but for the whole of Nottingham.

“These signs will help navigate walkers and they provide important information about the history and geography of the woods. It is an investment that Bovis Homes hopes will have a big impact on the local community.”
