The issue of bees is very important but too often open to bad links like the title of this piece. However, at the recent EK Development Trust seed swap a visitor asked me what the council is doing to help the survival of bees, so crucial to our very existence. There just happened to be a Councillor there so we asked him to find out. Read on for thei council's reply.
Friends of Burnbraes Park in Biggar are celebrating after securing funding to develop a neglected area of the park into a wildlife area. The area will be terraced to improve accessability and planted with a range of wildflowers and plants. Bird and bat boxes will also be installed. The groundwork will be carried out by Clydesdale Community Initiatives which provides training opportunities for young people, and various youth groups will be involved in planting. Once complete the whole community will be able to enjoy this area.
