Biodiversity Management Plans

The Parish Council have implemented (2021) a grassland and woodland management plan for the Centenary Field to help nature thrive! You can read the management plans over on our Centenary Field webpage. 

Rewilding in Frampton

“Rewild” or returning to nature doesn’t just mean reintroducing big species such as wolves and beavers. It can be as simple as embracing messy areas in your garden! That pile of old leaves could be a home for a hedgehog or a hiding place for insects. The Parish Council are, for example, leaving a border of long grass around the Centenary Field to grow, only cutting once every 3 years. This is to let wildlife use the long, rough grass as shelter. Check out Rewilding Britain’s website for more tips on making your garden wilder www.rewildlingbritain.org.uk
