Some of you may have noticed if you’re taking your daily exercise in Easebourne Park that a large section of grass between the zip-wire and the pond is being left uncut. This will be left to grow throughout May to help our bees!

The South Downs National Park Authority recently launched a major campaign to help reverse the decline of bees in the South East and create a haven for pollinators in the South Downs National Park. This includes creating wildflower corridors and leaving areas of grass uncut during this critical time of the year.

We already have a number of wildflower banks within the Park and hope to create more in the future.
