After working with Thurnby & Bushby Parish Council and Harborough District Council, Thurnby Scouting & Guiding group received permission to plant wildflowers on the grass verge outside of their building in Thurnby village. Everyone was very excited!
The group contacted Coles Nurseries informing them of the project and they kindly donated boxes of wildflower seeds.
The day to take off the top layer of grass and sow the seeds was arranged. Alicia Kearns the MP for Melton & Rutland informed us that she would be delighted to attend. District, County and Parish Councillors, as well as The Leicester Mercury, were all invited. But then, The Coronavirus pandemic hit... So to keep everyone safe, the event was cancelled with great disappointment.
