Planting native trees and wildflowers

Planting native trees and wildflowers

The Parish Council are supporting a team of community volunteers who are planting native trees and wildflowers in the QEII field near Platt Bridge.

The team have consulted with neighbours and with Shropshire Council about the plans to establish a small copse of native trees from the Woodland Trust, and to convert part of the green space into a wildflower area.

The copse area has been marked out and the first task will be to move a few established trees from other areas of the field. This will be done by a core team in December but in January there will be an opportunity for other volunteers from the community to assist, in a COVID secure way, when the rest of the area is planted. this is currently planned for 10:30-12:30 on Sunday 3 January. Please do use the contact form on this website if you would like to take part.

The work on the wildflower area will start in spring and more details will be communicated before that happens.
