Wildflower meadow arrives in Abbey Meadows!

The Vale District Council parks dept have been preparing an area of ground between the mini-golf and the river to be a wildflower meadow, designed and masterminded by Lucille.

Cowslips have already been planted, and  Saturday 22nd saw the laying of turves to form the edges of a wildflower meadow, which will now be seeded. Carbon Cutters of all ages came to help lay the turf.
