Community helps boost biodiversity in Widnes

09 November 2010

Arley Woods in Widnes will be brighter and more biodiverse than ever thanks to the local community working in partnership with Halton Borough Council.


Healthy woodlands

Following extensive woodland management work over winter 2009/10 to safeguard the long-term health of the woodland, the Council has worked with local people and nearby scout groups to plant 1,000 wildflower plants and sow 5kg of wildflower seed, sourced locally from Landlife, the national wildflower charity based in Knowsley.


People and wildlife

The good work will continue in autumn 2010, with the groups set to plant tens of thousands of bulbs. 10,000 english bluebells, 10,000 snowdrop and 10,000 crocus will be introduced, further improving the woodland for people and wildlife alike.


Wildflower meadow

Meanwhile in Runcorn, Haddocks Wood Pasture, which has been managed for nature conservation as a wildflower meadow, will be receiving further overseeding operations in 2011.
