We are a local community group, led by Matt Tomlinson. Started in the first lockdown, when seeing the potential in strawberry field as a future wildflower meadow the landowner was contacted and we now work together to fill this green space with nature. Creating these meadows however takes time (3-5 years).
We are supported and seek advice from two charities - PlantLife (of No Mow May fame) and the Norfolk wildlife trust.
The fields position offers a crucial link to other valuable local wildlife sites- Eaton park (the two wildflower meadows), Marston marshes and the UEA. Thus we have created a vital link for many species to expand their range and move onto to other sites.
Having full public access the field is well known by runners, dog walkers, nature lovers and hot air balloon adventurers.
