Wildflower Planting

Apr 19, 2020 | Community News, Natural Millbrook

On Sunday 17 April a dozen or so Parish Councillors and volunteers met in the playing fields. Lead by Councilor Bruce Taggart we had the task of planting 1,000 wild flowers plugs along a 4 metre strip by the brambles.We planted 15 or so plugs in small groups all around the large grassy area in the centre of the playing fields. the money spent came from part of the grant the Parish Council have to improve the area.

It was a lovely sunny morning and it was quite a social occasion with lots of laughter which made the time pass very quickly.This task was completed as well as the ground being raked by the orchard and wild flower seeds sown.We all look forward to seeing all the flowers in the summer which will hopefully attract many bees and other wildlife. Many thanks to all who turned out and gave time to help improve the village.
