City Bank is now officially a Local Nature Reserve (LNR) - the first one in Cirencester. The Friends of City Bank hosted a launch event on the 5th September 2018. LNR's are designated to acknowledge and protect the natural environment to conserve them for the future for both people and wildlife.
The Friends of City Bank Group and Cirencester Town Council have been working together over the last 5 years to develop a vision for the area that meets the needs of the wildlife and people alike. Our vision is for the City Bank area to be a great space which everyone can enjoy and which is a safe sanctuary for wildlife. City Bank is a very special area with wild orchids, a wide range of birds and other creatures.
