Cyril Park: Wildflower Meadow Funding Secured

🥳 Tom, Chris and I are so pleased to have been successful in our bid for council money for a new wildflower meadow in Cyril Park.

🌹 It was only a few months into being a Cllr when we worked with Tom, the vicar at St Andrew’s, to put the bid in. There’d been a meadow there before, but grass had overwhelmed it. We’ve worked closely with Chris and Steve from BCP Council to pick out a really good perennial mix that should last for a good length of time, and will sow more until they’re established.

🌺 So, it was a real pleasure to finally sow those seeds and see this project through. There’s still so much we want to do here and it will take a long time, but this will hopefully be a beautiful, blossoming start to that.

👍 Thanks to Steve and Rich from BCP Council for preparing the area and working with us on it. And the sun shone! 🌞
