Posted on

The Delfin Way wildflower meadow….

Posted on

The planned area for 24 houses off Delfin Way is looking rather unkept, in comparison to previous years. It’s clearly been left like this intentionally, for the wild flowers. My only comment is that it would be nice for the edges to be cut as a minimum. What do you think, should it be cut […]
