IT is such a pleasure to drive around our beautiful county at this time of year and to see roadside verges full of wildflowers.

The cheerful signs “do not cut yet” indicate that someone is taking care of these verges.

How lucky we are to finally have an enlightened council who together with their contractors Balfour Beatty and encouraged by Verging on Wild have taken on the challenge to slow the alarming decline of our biodiversity and wildlife.


We no longer want a “tidy” countryside but one full of flowers and vegetation that are able sustain our diminishing number of insects and birds.

Not only that, just think of the savings for ratepayers with fewer cuts per year.
