A volunteer-run community group is celebrating after buying its ninth reserve.

Peterborough-based Langdyke Countryside Trust has bought Christ's College Nature Reserve for £45,000.

The reserve, which lies between Helpston and Maxey alongside Maxey Cut near Peterborough, is made up of 22 acres of restored gravel pits and includes native trees and shrubs.

Richard Astle, who chairs the group, called it “a magnificent addition” to the Langdyke portfolio of reserves and “great news” for wildlife in the area.
