Planting around Church Fields

We have done some planting to help pollinators with a range of wildflowers and trees, namely purging buckthorn to attract Brimstone Butterflies whose caterpillars use this plant as their primary food source. With any luck, we should have some of these beautiful butterflies become resident in our village.

Many thanks to Terry, Karen and Sara for helping with the planting around Church Fields.
