Tesco Bags of Help Award
Our Year of the Environment programme of events. Bug Hotel building in Remembrace Meadow in Mesnes Park, with local groups of children. Wild flowers. Recycled bug houses to make and take home. Wildflower seed planting, and edible flower planting using recycled egg cartons. Encouraging bio-diversity, encouraging more pollinating insects to our green spaces and gardens.
Following a grant win from Lloyds Community Fund, we planted an area of Mesnes Park with a selection of shrubs and plants.
Pictures of necg projects and events can be located in our necg gallery.
We'd like to get everyone involved with a fantastic poetry project. Write a poem about a local topic of your choice, and submit it to us online. We will share them around town on social media initially, and when our fantastic local businesses are back up and running we will ask them to display the QR codes so everyone can access the poems all over town.
Thanks for your contributions so far, please keep sending them in!
