SUSTAINABLE BLEWBURY RECEIVES GRANT FROM
NORTH WESSEX DOWNS AONB
"Sustainable Blewbury" has recently received a grant from the North Wessex Downs AONB Sustainable Development Fund. The project aims to preserve, improve and create areas of chalk grassland in and near the village of Blewbury in South Oxfordshire. To help get the very best from the grant, the project team have arranged a visit by wildflower expert Charles Flower to look at the sites, particularly the area where a new wildflower meadow will be created. Charles will advise on the best mix of plants and the best methods for establishing them. If you would like to attend the meeting in Blewbury at 11am on the 27th February 2012 please contact Oliver Cripps on firstname.lastname@example.org or Peter Cockrell on email@example.com. If you would like more information about Sustainable Blewbury and the project please visit www.sustainable-blewbury.org.uk.
