Whilst we are not running another 'Photo of the Month' competition, we could not let it pass that members of Tattenhall Wildlife Group, TWiG, have submitted some fantastic photographs of wildflowers taken in the Flacca Wetland just this week.
This area of land, managed by TWiG, was seeded by the Environment Agency following the completion of their work on the Mill Brook Flood Defence Scheme in March 2016.
Earlier this summer the site was visited by the Chief Executive of the Environment Agency, Sir James Bevan, who was touring flood defence projects throughout England and Wales. We were unable to report on this at that time because the visit took place during the general election period and rules of purdah applied.
Sir James commented that this 'small-scale, value for money, community led project, was exemplary practice'.
This project involved a partnership between The Environment Agency, The Bolesworth Estate, TWiG and the Tenant farmer.
Should you wish to help out with practical conservation projects around the village, TWiG members (otherwise known as our local eco warriors) are out and about in the locality most Monday afternoons – give Andrew a ring on 01829 770026.
