This project was funded on 24 Nov 2020!

During lockdown we all realised the importance of green space within our community, somewhere to relax and unwind. With your help, our community, especially playgroup and school children, would benefit from this currently inaccessible land and providing a quiet space to relax and learn about the environment. The small field next to Church Walk in Bredon is called Glebe Field. We are planning to install various features to improve the biodiversity of this area of land. Following guidance from the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, we plan to grow wildflowers & fruit trees, build an invertebrate bank and hibernacula, install interpretation boards to educate, a public route through the meadow, with picnic benches to sit, relax and enjoy the environment.

What we'll deliver:

  • New Pedestrian access
  • Picnic Benches
  • Multiple Interpretation Boards
  • Sowing of Wildflower Seeds
  • Planting Margin Plants

Why it's a great idea:

We have the support of both the playgroup and school; they are very nearby and would utilise this as an outdoor education space. The School ECO Club will help with planting and designs for the interpretation boards. The west side of Bredon Village is further away from the playing fields, this will be a great area to relax and get away from stress. Just think how useful this space would have been during COVID19 lockdown for residents at that end of the village.

Steps to get it done:

  • Sow the wildflower seeds
  • Build Invertebrate Bank
  • Build Hibernacula
  • Plant Margin Plants
  • Weeding
  • Design Interpretation Boards
  • Install Pedestrian Entrance
  • Install Interpretation Boards
  • Install Picnic Benches
