RESIDENTS living on a National Trust estate in West Somerset are being invited to ‘community update’ event on Tuesday (September 26).

The trust wants to tell people on its Holnicote Estate about recent projects and its plans for the future.

The meeting is being held in Porlock Village Hall from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm.

The Holnicote Estate has been in the news for its beaver breeding project which has seen a number of kits born on Exmoor for the first time in 400 years.

It also made headlines earlier this month with the completion of a three-year pioneering project to re-connect a section of the River Aller to its floodplain to create a new and different waterscape using an innovative restoration technique not previously tried in the UK.

A National Trust spokesperson said: “The event is designed to engage with the community in order to showcase some of the exciting projects that the trust are running on the estate, including an update on the ‘Riverlands Project’ and an introduction to the next phase of landscape recovery.

“You can also try a brand new virtual reality tour of the estate and meet the team working on the projects.”
