The new Bee Border on the south side has certainly attracted a vast number of pollinating insects since it burst into flower. To date, 69 different pollinators have been identified excluding bees!! The main insects to make use of the food source have been hoverflies. We have created a barrier alongside the railings to restrict the amount of rubbish blowing onto the border, and the Community Payback lads made a great job of tidying up the lane side.

We are hoping that next year the display of flowers will be even better. With that in mind, donations of plant and flower seeds wil be gratefully received. Many thanks to all who have helped so far
