As part of our commitment to the climate emergency we have increased our low mow activity. We have added this year (2022) to our low mow areas already set up in Castle Gardens. We have worked closely with our community groups, Wallingford Wildlife Group and Wild about Wallingford.
We had some trial areas last year and this year we have added three more areas :
- Bull Croft – the area under the trees to the left as you walk along path from High Street to St George’s Road.
- Kinecroft – all long the left hand boarder from High Street past the Coach and Horses to the end of the Kinecroft. We also have some amazing cow parsley around the Saxon fortifications which are great for biodiversity.
- The Hot Dog – the land on the left as you leave Wallingford towards Shillingford where the bus stop is. This area will be left apart from the edges so it looks kept. We also plan to plant some spring bulbs here in the autumn.
We will be looking for more volunteers to help with these areas in the near future. Please reach out the wildlife group or to us if you’d like to be involved.
