The Parish Council, in its position as trustees of the Recreation Ground, has planted a hedge alongside the existing metal railings adjoining Kibbys Field, on the southern boundary of the playground. It is a broad mix of plants including Hawthorn, Blackthorn and Hazel which will provide blossom in spring and berries in autumn/ winter and would be good for nesting birds and some butterflies. The mix is in accordance with RHS guidance. It’s not easy to see at the moment but hopefully as it becomes established it soon will.
Staplegrove Parish Council were grateful to receive free trees from Somerset West and Taunton during Tree Planting week. Parish Councillors and friends planted the trees on the edge of the Children’s Playground.
