Her children would play in the area and had spotted a variety of wildlife, including a family of muntjac deer.
Since then the council has worked with residents and volunteers to create a haven for nature and wildlife known as Dingley Dell. The land is owned by the council but cannot be developed due to the proximity of a brook.
In January the Conservation Volunteers worked with the Berkshire Biodiversity Action Team to clear rubbish and more than 20 members of the Reading Green Gym helped dig and wood chip a path and carry out other improvements.
In time, it is hoped to install bird boxes, bat boxes, hedgehog homes and a bug hotel while a fallen tree could be carved to create a seat.
