Yesterday The Conservation Volunteers – TCV began their work on transforming the sorely neglected south western extremity of Hyde Park Cemetery into a wildlife friendly corner. Helped by Andy, Nigel and Richard from Friends of Hyde Park Cemetery, the team had a very productive first day. Litter and rubbish were cleared, low value vegetation was removed and much of the 120 sq. metre slope was dug over. On Thursday the remaining area will be cleared and new wildlife-friendly shrubs will be planted. The photos show progress from the start to the finish of this first day. We are indebted to Greggs for their Environmental Grant to fund this work.
