Jane Ashford is a Natural Infrastructure Officer with Plymouth City Council - you may have seen her in a series of videos we have produced about how we manage our grass. Here, Jane explains what the teams are up to as the season comes to a close.

A family of beavers is set to be released in the Forder Valley as part of an exciting new nature scheme.

The Green Minds project, which launches on Monday, seeks to re-wild urban parks, gardens and verges, introduce a new system of working with partners and crucially, encourage more people from all walks to life, to enjoy the health benefits that our green spaces provide.

A small area within the Forder Valley Nature Reserve will be closed from next month while works to build a drainage pond for the Forder Valley Link Road are carried out.

The entrance at the bottom of Novorossiysk Road and the two short sections of footpath linking to it will be closed from Monday 4 November.
