Brigg Rotarians are seeding the riverside walk near Lidals

On a bright and sunny Tuesday morning on May 5th a group of Brigg Rotarians and members of Brigg Business Partnership supported by North Lincolnshire Council Neighbourhood Services-Rural Section, began an exciting and visionary project to develop and extended a wild flower area beside the newly built footpath that will eventually go to South Ferriby.

The first section planted was between the River and Lidl’s Store and the team managed to sow a 120m long strip. This sowing is part of the UK’s biggest ever wildflower campaign which is hoping to create over one million square meters of colour during the summer of 2015.

The Big Lottery has sponsored the seeds and the project is led by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. Any community group can apply for the seeds and further information is on www.growwilduk.com website but Spring kits have been allocated so it will be Autumn kits that you can apply for now.

Jane Kitching, Vice Chair of Brigg Business Partnership, said how grateful the partnership was for the support given by members of the Partnership, the Council and the Rotary Club of Brigg and she really was looking forward to a wonderful yearly bloom of wild flowers that will gradually extend along the new path.
