Parish Council signs up for RHS scheme

Maisemore Parish Council agreed last Monday night to register for the Royal Horticultural Society's "Its Your Neighbourhood" scheme.

This is a non-competitive grassroots community gardening campaign helping people to make lasting improvements to their local environment. There's an introduction here and the scheme has its own 'information hub' here.

It is hoped that enough volunteers will come forward to establish wildflower and pollinator planting on the approaches to the village and the Council will also welcome any suggestions of areas within the village - however large or small - where planting would improve the local amenity and environment.  If you can help in any way,please email bloom@maisemore-pc.og.uk.

Although there is no clear evidence yet, there is a view that planting could help influence drivers to slow down through our village.
