Public Meeting re. Wildflower Verges

Posted: Thu, 23 Jul 2020 12:16 by Katherine Clarke

The Parish Council has arranged for Parishioners who are interested in helping our village to become more biodiverse to meet with Leicestershire County Council Project Officers on July 31st 2020 at 10.00am on the Village Green (weather permitting). More »

If you would like to come please contact clerk@swinfordparishcouncil.gov.uk and let Katherine know so that the meeting can be managed safely.

We will discuss which of the verges in the village are best suited to not being mown and allowed to develop as wildflower areas. It is important to recognise that some Parishioners have mown verges near their homes for years and wish to see them remain as cultivated. We need to make sure that we take account of a range of views.

There is a map on this website showing the verges that could be considered as part of the project. Those identified will need to have a 'champion' for each section who will keep an eye on them and add wildflower seeds and plants at appropriate times. Please look at the map and the information sheet from LCC.

Siobhan Woodward (LCC Project Officer) has suggested that as a community we may also want to look at the 'Blue Campaign' https://bluecampaignhub.com/ which suggest ways in which we can all make our gardens and outdoor spaces more wildlife friendly.

We look forward to taking this forward with your support.
