Whilst the District Council has been responsible this year for planting the Sid Meadow, it's been the work of the Friends of the Byes which has raised the funds for the wildflower displays and other changes in the Byes area. [Futures Forum: Sid Meadow in June 2103... and July 2012]
There has been considerable praise from the public for this, to take one correspondent: You may not be aware, but the EDDC has been responsible for the planting of a delightful wild flower area in the Byes and the flowers are looking just wonderful at the moment. The area in question is at the back of Sid Meadow in an area once known as the Roly Poly Field, raised above the river Sid. It can be accessed via a slope or a flight of steps from the eastern side of the Byes and the flowers have been planted in drifts at the back of the field.
And here are the last two interpretation boards put up recently in the Byes, following on from yesterday's posting. [Futures Forum: If you go down to the Byes today...]
