Bulb Planting

On Saturday the 12th of October some of the Quorn in Bloom group planted bulbs on the area of grass at the end of Sanders Close.  We thank Tarmac for the funding to enable us to buy the bulbs and the Borough Council for giving us permission to plant them.     We hope villagers and visitors to the village will enjoy the show next Spring.

Today was the last of three work parties on Tom Long’s Meadow

Today was the last of three work parties organised by Ben Devine from Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust for an annual maintenance of the area. Some coppicing of the willow took place and portions have been cleared on both sides of the footpath despite the last day being curtailed by heavy rain. Thanks to the villagers who turned up to help.DSCN3693 (1024x768) (1024x768)DSCN3694 (1024x768)
