Lewes residents invited to Burleys bulb planting morning this week

Burleys and Lewes District Council are planting 4,000 crocus bulbs across the district to provide a much-needed nectar source for bees and butterflies in the spring.

And a community bulb planting event takes place on Friday October 19 from 10am until 1pm at the Newton Road Sheltered Housing Scheme.

Landport Residents Association will be helping out – with the rest of the community urged to join them.

Burleys community liaison officer Karen Rigby Faux explained: “Not only will the flowers bring joy to those who live here and provide much needed nectar for our bees and butterflies, the project will bring together residents across the estate and further afield.

“We welcome everyone to get involved and would love to know of any other ideas which could enhance the Landport estate and help wildlife.”
