Middleton Community Garden
The Middleton Allotment site is owned and managed by the Parish Council and has been used to provide plots to local residents for many years. Unfortunately, due to various ongoing problems with soil quality and flooding on the land, it was proved not suitable for accommodating allotment plots, and therefore, another purpose was needed for this site. The Parish Council are now planning an exciting project to convert this neglected piece of land into a a wildlife-rich community garden that can be enjoyed by local residents.
Wood Meadow Habitat
A wood meadow is a special habitat that allows wildlife to access and pollinate meadow wildflowers, whilst being able to have a pockets of dense wooded area nearby to find quick refuge. The Parks Trust are in the process of completing a large woodmeadow tranformation that will surround our community garden, and allow our garden to be part of a much larger wildlife rich area.
What will our Community Garden include?
Seasonal wildflower meadow
Short grass exploration paths
Recycled plastic benches
Native tree avenue and arboretum
Dense pockets of plants and shrubs
An open access into the surrounding woodmeadow
Peace Commemoration display across the Parish
The Parish Council have now planted 18 trees across the Parish as an act of remembrance.
Why 18? The number 18 signifies the number of conflicts the UK has been involved in from WW1 up until present time.
These trees have also formed part of the tree avenue at the Middleton Allotment, and the others will be planted across the parish.
