30 Apr Acresfield Opens
The Park was opened by the world famous botanist, Professor David Bellamy OBE. Also in attendance was Professor Bellamy’s son, Rufus, who is also an experienced botanist and keen environmentalist and Ben Wallace MP.
David Bellamy was keen to see the “first shoots” of the new conservation area which was being created as part of the Park and the plans for the new pond. Children from the local primary school, St Mary and St Michael, were in attendance to assist in the planting of buddleias and helped by putting up various bird boxes.
