With spring only round the corner, Notgrove is delighted to announce it will have its very own kingfisher arriving in May this year.
Notgrove will be sponsoring a beautiful kingfisher as part of the Kingfisher Cotswolds Trail 2021.
The 3ft sculpture, which is being painted by one of many local artists, will be mounted and displayed on the Notgrove village green next to the natural spring near the Nuttery Café for all to see and visit.
The Kingfisher Trail is a fantastic arts trail of 21 wonderful kingfisher sculptures which have been decorated by some of our most talented local artists. Visitors are invited to follow the trail in the summer of 2021, get out into nature and enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of the Cotswolds.
The Kingfisher Trail is being run by Cotswold National Landscapes to bring business, arts and local communities in the Cotswolds together to create an amazing public art trail while raising much-needed funds for children and young people. At the end of the project, all the wonderful sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds that will be reinvested.

There will be two trails with 21 kingfisher sculptures – the Severn Trail and the Thames Trail – both following the landscape and tributaries to the respective rivers. Notgrove Holidays will be part of the Thames Trail. For details of the trails go to https://www.kingfishertrail.org/the-trail
We are delighted to be a sponsor of the Kingfisher Trail because it is a smaller charity/organisation within Gloucestershire that assists rural communities and the local environment.
