[30 OCT 98] WARWICKSHIRE WILDLIFE TRUST PRESS RELEASE
JIGSAW Project Extended

Due to the huge amount of interest shown in Warwickshire Wildlife Trust's latest community project, organisers have decided to extend the deadline for jigsaw. The jigsaw project is asking people to contribute colour photographs of their local area to make a huge picture map of Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull. And the response to the project, which is supported by Severn Trent Water, has been way beyond expectations.

Community & Education Manager for Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, Ms Chris Thomas said that staff at the Trust were thinking up an extra project in response. She said,

"We are absolutely delighted with the enthusiasm that people have shown for jigsaw. We have received loads of photos from all over the Trust area, showing the places and wildlife that people value. It's going to be a tough job selecting which ones to use, but we have another idea up our sleeves that will enable everybody's contribution to feature in the project. We aim to make a jigsaw Doomsday Book which will be kept at the Visitor Centre at Brandon Marsh as a permanent record of our area as it looks at the end of the Millennium."

Chris added that although the original closing date was 31st October, this would be extended by a month to the end of November, to allow people a little more time to send in their favourite pictures of landscape, wildlife and buildings that are considered important at local level. The Trust's Community Project team will be working with a local designer to construct the map over the next few months and they hope to unveil the final JIGSAW at a special event next spring.

Colour prints should be sent to JIGSAW, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, Brandon Marsh Nature Centre, Brandon Lane, Coventry CV3 3GW.
