Verges Project - The Grant and the Licence......

The Grant for seeds and plants for the verges around the village has at last been secured. The licence is now in place & is held by the Parish Council. Plants have been purchased and work is under-way by the working party.

Primroses are planted in the lay-by and other areas are being prepared for other species. As time goes on, with a united effort, all will gradually grace our village and we will see wild flowers about us again.

The more serious side to this is not just that they are attractive, but insects, especially bees, are attracted to them. Unfortunately the number of project volunteers has declined and this puts the whole scheme at risk. A united effort would see it continue.
