A6 Wildflowers

You might have seen the recent BBC news story about wildflowers grown on the side of main roads: Why are England’s roadsides blooming? This led us to setting up a new project where we’re hoping bring some beauty to the stretch of the A6 alongside Wixams.

For this project we will be getting in touch with the campaign behind this story, led by Plantlife. We want to learn the best way to move forward before contacting Bedford Borough Council. We would like them to devote the entire verge from Southern Cross to The Causeway along the A6 to wildflowers, saving the council money and providing a habitat for the bees, butterflies and other creatures.

You can learn more inspiring stories from the Plantlife site but we’re sure you’ll agree of the importance of protecting our wildlife. If you want to help out then please join in the conversation via our Facebook group and Twitter account. It’s important to us that your voice is heard.
