Old Football Field in Chudleigh Knighton and Wildflower Verges
A group of Hennock Parish Councillors and residents met at the Old Football Field in Chudleigh Knighton on 29th June to discuss how can enhance the Old Football Field area and the possibility of Wild Flower verges around the parish.
The Old Football Field is currently enjoyed by walkers and young people using the remaining football goal, which we would like to keep. Our vision is to enhance the area by the addition of fruit trees, picnic tables and information boards whilst retaining its quiet ambience to make it an amenity that can be enjoyed by more of the community whilst also educating them about the importance of the surrounding heathland.
We will be working closely with Devon Wildlife Trust and Natural England on the project and seeking grant funding for this low key project.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 20th July, 7.30pm at the Old Football Field, please come along and join us if you'd like to be involved.
