We have started a project behind the scout hut on the Grange which is the conversion of an ill-kempt, overgrown bramble area into a pleasant little suntrap, hopefully for the benefit of resting dog walkers or just those people out for a gentle stroll.
We have stared to clear the brambles and the overall project is to provide an area nicely turfed, covering approximately 80 m2 with a seat, picnic table and bird feeding station with a bed of surrounding pollinating flowers/shrubs. Frank Butterfield and Phyllis Walton, members of EPICH, are drawing up the project definition based on timing, cost and inclusion. We see this as being at least a 12 month project.
