Life in Troedyrhiw’s Memorial & Wildlife Garden

The habitat value of Saron Graveyard is steadily increasing. Recent observations include:-

  • Blue tits rearing a family of chicks in one of the nest boxes erected earlier this year.
  • Rose bushes provided by the Council’s wildlife officer Rolf Brown are flowering for the first time.
  • Signs of insect activity in the ‘bug box’ set up this spring.
  • The wildflowers which made such a good display in part of the graveyard last summer have reseeded and fresh growth is beginning to appear.
  • ‘Mr Toad’ (or should that be ‘Mrs’ ?) seems to be finding the graveyard to his/her liking.
  • Ornamental trees planted last autumn and this spring are all establishing well.

Although much remains to be done we are pleased with this small step towards realising our vision of creating SARON MEMORIAL & WILDLIFE GARDEN.

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
