The project area of Land is featureless, misued and overgrown with brambles and weeds that have little flora value. There is a tarmac path ( NCN62/ The Trans Pennine Trail) running through the land which is often subject to littering and dog fouling. We are developing the area of land to the rear of Sefton Drive, Maghull for the benefit of the community. We would like to bring together our current volunteers and the local community of all ages and abilities. We have been removing overgrown vegetation and cultivating the area of land into a wildflower meadow with the particular benefit to the bee and butterfly population. We would also like to encourage other forms of wildlife by installing bird boxes, hedgehog houses and insect hotels. For the local community we want this to be an area where they can visit for pleasure and leisure whilst walking or cycling. For those from the wider community we would like this to be a resting or turning point on the very popular NCN route 62 of the Trans Pennine Trail.
