Children show they're wild about flowers

Released: Wednesday, 24 May 2017

Little children helped to make a big difference to Lancing Manor Park.

The youngsters from the Impulse Leisure Centre's creche and Noah's Ark Nursery were among those who turned out to scatter wildflower seeds, supported by community park rangers, to bring a splash of colour to the area.

The seed sowing was the latest in an initiative by Adur & Worthing Councils to work with local communities to create a colourful summer spectacle in their parks and open spaces while at the same time enhancing the habitats for wildlife.

Wildflower seeds, such as poppies and cosmos, have already been sown at Worthing's Victoria Park, The Gallops and Beach House Park as well as at Hamble Recreation Ground in Lancing and Fishersgate Recreation Ground.

Twenty parks and open spaces across Adur and Worthing will benefit from the scheme this year.

Peter Whish, the Councils' Community Engagement Manager, said:

“A big thanks to children and staff from the Impulse Leisure Centre creche and Noah's Ark Nursery who did the work.”

“The flowers will add colourful displays and flowers for bees and other wildlife right through the summer.”
