The Norfolk Wildlife Trust (NWT) yesterday launched its biggest ever appeal to help raise £1m to buy a stretch of north Norfolk’s wild coastline.

The Cley Marshes Land Purchase Appeal aims to raise funds to secure conservation for the last stretch of eight km (about five miles) of coastal nature reserves from Blakeney Point to Salthouse Marshes.

Alongside that appeal the NWT is asking people to share their memories of Cley Marshes and find out why Cley is special to you.

Did you go there as a child and see your first little tern? Have you brought your own children there to explore?

Brendan Joyce, chief executive of the NWT, said: “Whatever your special memories of Cley, and however you share them with us, help us to honour our founder’s vision and hugely expand the nation’s best-loved nature reserve by making and gift-aiding a donation.”

You can share your memories by commenting below or uploading your photos and videos to www.iwitness24.co.uk.

You can also share them with the NWT by emailing mycley@norfolkwildlifetrust.org.uk, sending a message on facebook, or via twitter using the hashtag #mycley.

● To donate please visit www.norfolkwildlifetrust.org.uk/appeal or call 01603 625540.
