Despite it being bank holiday and the local papers not publishing notice of it! the Queslett Nature Reserve, seed planting session went very well.

As usual a band of dedicated volunteers, helped remove bricks and rubble from semi prepared sites in the reserve and sowed the seeds of a number of different plants. There was also a number of potted plants which were planted. Just some of the plants seed sown were Fox Glove, Birdfoot Trefoil, Cornflower, Evening Primerose, Ox- Eyed Daisey, Toad Flax, Hedge Bedstraw and Quiner.
These plants and seeds, have been selected to help Butterflies, Bees, and Birds flourish on the reserve in years to come. Some members of the group carried out a litter pick, to ensure the reserve is kept as tidy as possible.

I would like to thank all those who attended the event for their hard work and also for the Leisure Service department for its contribution.

The Leisure Services department have now also agreed to place 2 or 3 log benches within the reserve for the comfort of those who use it. It is also hoped that another "Bat walk" will take place in late July.

Dear Councillor
WE are really pleased to see that our reserve is being so well looked after. It is really pleasing to see someone who will not just talk about a problem but will also roll up their sleaves and get on with it.
Best wishes to all those concerned

Well done its good to see that you unlike so many, do something to help our wild life.
Many just talk about improving the enviroment and so on but thats all they do.
If they were all like you I would not be so worried about the future.
