Since 2007 we have been creating a wildlife garden on a half acre site at the edge of the allotment adjacent to the local school.
In December 2006 we were given an Awards for All Lottery Grant to create the wildlife garden – with the help of volunteers. We have dug out a wildlife pond, planted native hedges, created hibernaculum and log piles for slow worms and wildlife, have sowed a wildflower meadow, installed a bird hide built a pond viewing platform (and access ramp) and made accessible paths. We’ve come a long way, but it is still a work in progress.
If you are interested in helping with the wildlife garden please contact the Committee – we’re around at the weekend and on most weekdays. This year we plan to build a bug hotel.
