Chippenham Town Council has shared glowing feedback for its wildflower area.

The town council had received an email from a resident who praised the scheme on the roundabout at Avenue La Fleche in partnership with Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.

The email said: “I have watched the greening of this space with great interest and today I stood and gazed at the wonderful sight of the ox-eye daisies and so many other flowers and grasses shining in the bright sun.

“Bees and other insects were making the most of the feast. The meadow really was a joy to behold.

“So, a huge thank you to all of you who had the vision and will to create this space for nature. I hope that this success will keep you inspired to continue your efforts wherever you can.”

A spokesman for the town council said: “This area was particularly challenging to cultivate into a wild flower area as the soil had been neglected and needed enrichment to enable the flowers to grow.

“We are very pleased with the outcome and this area will only improve with time.”
