Life On Marsh: GWT’s Robert Magee points out wildlife to Heron House staff Life On Marsh: GWT’s Robert Magee points out wildlife to Heron House staff during their visit to Magor Marsh.

A leading Newport financial management company had a wild day out of the office in support of Gwent Wildlife Trust (GWT).

Staff from Heron House got a glimpse of the bird of their company namesake, as well as lots of other wildlife, including endangered water voles, during a guided tour of Magor Marsh nature reserve.
Heron House recently took up corporate membership with GWT.

The charity’s fundraising officer Robert Magee lead directors Saran Allott Davey, Chris Jordan and some of the team on a guided walk of the marsh – which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and one the last remaining areas of natural fenland on the Gwent Levels.

Robert said: “As a charity we are grateful to all our supporters and express our thanks to our latest business supporter Heron House Financial Management.
“We hope staff enjoyed seeing the breathtaking beauty of Magor Marsh, which is a real Gwent gem. It has great historic importance and is teaming with wildlife, including endangered water voles, which staff from Heron House were fortunate to be able to see first-hand, during their visit.”

Saran Allott Davey Managing Director of Heron House Financial Management Ltd said: “Our contribution to Gwent Wildlife Trust helps them to care for reserves such as Magor Marsh, campaign against damaging developments, survey for rare and endangered species like water voles, and educate children and adults alike about the wildlife of Gwent. We are delighted to support GWT’s work and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Magor Marsh.”
