You may have noticed that we haven’t planted the usual bedding flowers on the town roundabout this year.
In a bid to be more sustainable and eco-friendly our grounds team has worked with members of (Ringwood Actions for Climate Emergency) RACE to design a scheme that is pollinator friendly and eventually won’t need to be watered on such a regular basis. The plants will take a while to reach their full potential, but we hope will give a wonderful display for many years to come.
The new raised beds have been made using reclaimed timber from old picnic tables from Carvers Recreation Ground, and work on these will be finished over the next few weeks.
The grounds team has also constructed two new raised beds in Jubilee Gardens, again with help from RACE volunteers with the planting design and donated plants. Further planting will be carried out in this area during the Autumn.
