Brigg Rotarians and members of Brigg Business Partnership, supported by North Lincolnshire Council Neighbourhood Services, joined forces in a visionary project to develop an extended wild flower area beside the newly built riverside cycle way and footpath.

The first section that was planted is between the river and Lidl’s Store.

This sowing is part of the UK’s biggest ever wild flower campaign, hoping to create more than one million square meters of new colour this summer.

“The Partnership is grateful for the support given by members of their Committee, the Council and the Rotary Club of Brigg, particularly through Chris Darlington, for this venture and we are really looking forward to a wonderful yearly bloom of wild flowers which will gradually extend along the new river path,” said Jane Kitching, Vice Chair of Brigg Business Partnership, who is pictured above left with the volunteer planters

The seeds have been provided by the Big Lottery and promoted by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Any local community volunteer group can apply for the seeds and further information can be found on growwilduk.com website.
