It’s been a long time since the Cawston Greenway project was started. A lot of work and meetings with various people, a steep learning curve in all aspects of conservation and biodiversity. However, we are now at a point where we can actually get on site and do something.
With this is mind, we are having a litter-pick day on Sunday 25th April 11am to 3pm. The first step in converting the site into an interesting and exciting nature reserve, with access to Draycote Water and Country Park, as well as Cawston Woods and Cawston Reservoir.
Funding wise, we have funding from Cawston Parish Council, Action Earth, BTCV, the co-operative, and HSBC so far. It’s great that these organisations are keen to get involved and I am so grateful for their support. Thank-you so much.
Moving forwards, we are going to be making hedges and cutting back the trees to allow sunlight onto the site. We will be planting wild flower seeds to encourage butterflies and bees, we have the largest badger population in Warwickshire so we need to look after them and make sure whatever we do, doesn’t impact them.
There is plenty to do and sometimes it looks quite daunting, however the end result will make it worth while.
Rugby Observer are running a story on the greenway this week in the paper so look out for that. And I hope to see you all on Sunday 😮
