The Council has agreed to support a local ‘friends of’ group to establish a wildflower area at the Stanley Village Recreation Ground. The proposed layout and location is shown on the attached plan.
It is proposed that the grass be left uncut for the coming year to see what naturally establishes itself and more advice and guidance will be sought from the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, who have been working with us on the Fallow Field project at Stanley Common.
Anyone that wants to get involved with the project is encouraged to get in touch with Len Shorthouse who is leading on the creation of the volunteer group. See our facebook page to get in touch with him.
