Bridge Craft Coronation Meadow Print

Walking over the Holt/Farndon Bridge this summer (2016), you might have seen a meadow in full bloom with Cornflowers, Corn Chamomile and Corncockle. This is the Bridge Craft Coronation Meadow, being managed by North Wales Wildlife Trust (NWWT) on behalf of a private landowner.

Coronation Meadows is a nationwide initiative which aims to create a native wildflower meadow in every county of the UK, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Coronation. The restoration process involves harvesting green hay from a nearby species-rich donor meadow, which is then spread across a recipient meadow deemed to be suitable for long-term restoration. The hay spread across the Bridge Craft meadow in Holt came from a Site of Special Scientific Interest, Three Cornered Meadow at Old Pulford Brook. This process will be repeated every summer for the next three years, with the hope that native herbs and grasses will once again establish on this small floodplain meadow.

The second Sunday of November is Remembrance Sunday. At 11am a two minute silence is observed at war memorials, cenotaphs, religious services and shopping centres throughout the country.

Why consider AD?

Due to the EU Landfill Directive, much of the biodegradable waste stream, which would previously have been sent to landfill, has to be dealt with by other means.

With strong public local opposition to incineration, authorities are looking for alternatives to tackle the UK’s growing waste problem.
