We switched days this week and worked Friday so we could meet the Green Flag Award judges. This is open to all green spaces throughout the UK and the Country Park has won it every year since it was first entered. We were in the Quarry to carry on with digging out the bramble regrowth and it was really pleasing to see a lot of sheep’s sorrel now in flower on the areas that we have cleared.
There is also plenty of wood sage and rosebay willowherb taking advantage of the light now available with the scrub gone. We hope that there will be a botany survey this year to highlight the increase in diversity of plant species.
