Stevenage flower power plan
A MEADOW has been planted in Stevenage to attract wildlife to the town.
The borough council teamed up with Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and volunteers to sow a wildflower area in Shephalbury Park.
“Wildflower meadows are a great way to create habitats for wildlife and it’s really satisfying to get involved in planting. It’s also an enjoyable way to get together with local people and do something really positive for your community,” environment portfolio holder Cllr John Gardener said.
The meadow is part of a wider plan to improve green spaces in the town. Fairlands Valley Park, Monks Wood, Whomerley Wood and Roebuck Wood have been cleaned so far.
Planting on the margins of the Millennium and Environment Lakes in Fairlands Valley Park, coppicing at Whormerley Wood and hedge planting in Shackledell is planned for this November.
