The Islander

Friends of Holt Island receive copies of The Islander newsletter, which has information on all the latest news and events at the island, Wilhorn Meadow and the Thicket. The latest, and previous, issue is available to download.


The island has a great team of volunteers who are involved with practical conservation work on the island as well as opening and closing the nature reserve at weekends. If you would like more information on volunteering at Holt Island then please contact our Community Volunteer Coordinator by email at, download an application form [DOCX, 63KB]or pick up an application form from the Visitor Centre at Paxton Pits Nature Reserve.
