Some information was given about the meadow at the environment day in the churchyard as the site is next door. I would like to explore further ideas I have for managing the meadow for the community – it is owned by the Borough and they have indicated their willingness to be approached by a community “friends” group. We would need a constitution and set up a body to receive grant aid but would be able to get help and advice on this.
– The meadow is a site for wild flowers, has a wet area, some shrubs and small trees.
– We would need to get the grass cut once a year as we do now with Borough cooperation and may need to source funds to buy a conservation mower to help with the management. The Parish Council has a strimmer already.
– The meadow could do with a ‘ragwort pull’ so that grass cut as hay can be used to feed livestock.
I would like to host a meeting on site on Saturday afternoon July 2nd meet by the church at 2pm. Please come along to help ensure the survival of this important local nature reserve.
