We are beginning an exciting new project in partnership with Findern Parish Council and South Derbyshire District Council which we hope will create habitats for bees and butterflies, thus helping to halt the decline in these valuable insects.
We have conducted a review of all the areas which are mowed regularly throughout the village, and drawn up a management plan which we hope will increase the diversity of nectar-rich wildflowers. These will be supplemented with programmes to plant additional wildflowers together with berrying trees and shrubs.
All sites will be surveyed throughout the summer, and records kept of their progress.
