Replanting of the Area behind the rill on the Precinct.

Charlton Kings in Bloom was asked by the Parish Council to tidy up and replant part of the Precinct. We along with a number of other volunteers did this on Saturday 13th November, 2021.

This was a significant amount of work including site clearance, pruning, planting of shrubs and planting of many bulbs. It is credit to the hard work of everyone involved that the project was completed on the Saturday.

The Parish Council and CKiB hope that everyone will enjoy the extra colour and diversity of planting. It will of course take time for the new planting to develop fully.

One of our long term projects is the development of a British Wildflower Meadow at The Beeches. The poject is being undertaken in partnership with Cheltenham Borough Council and will take a number of years to develop fully. Some progress should be seen every year.

The pictures above were taken during 2020. Below are the notes about the meadow and its development which are also displayed at the meadow.
