The generous group donated £800 to Nailsea Environment and Wildlife Trust (NEWT) to pay for a platform at Moorend Spout Nature Reserve, off Pound Lane.

Trustee Hilary West said: "We are extremely grateful to the Lions, as without its assistance, we would not have been able to complete this project.

"We hope schools and individual families will come and enjoy the excitement of discovering the many creatures which can be found in the pond."

The platform is made from recycled plastic wood, so should last for many years.
