It could be easy to feel downhearted at the end of a year that has been so difficult for so many: the cost of living is soaring and the organisations that keep our country running are struggling to cope. All we can do is to be there for those around us, whether they be family, friends or strangers.
We also urgently need to do our bit for the planet, even small actions can have big wins.
Friends of Duxford Green Spaces, with the blessing of Duxford Parish Council, has come up with a plan to improve biodiversity in the Parish – we will be doing all we can to increase the flora and fauna in the parish – this includes mowing the verges less frequently, planting meadow plants and creating more habitat for birds, insects and small mammals. We will be helping you to do the same in your gardens and business premises.
We are planning an event on Saturday 20th May on Brewery Field, to showcase our plans and hopefully show some early wins. We never did have our opening event as it was cancelled during lockdown, so this will be a great opportunity to come together on the field and celebrate everything that has been achieved in just over 3 years.
If you have something green, sustainable and eco friendly to showcase or sell, whether it is a craft, a trade or some other skill, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and book your stall!
