As a community we have been meeting up regularly to litter pick around the Kett’s Cave on Morley Street in Norwich, NR3 this is on the opposite side of the road to the Sandy Park, which we have nearly litter-free now.
The long-term plan is to create green corridors allowing our city-dwelling animals to pass freely between each green place. We have been in discussion with Matt Davies from the Fringe Project to improve this wonderful large green place we have on our doorstep. Our plan with Matt Davies is to become an official group, so we can then be in a position to apply for grant funding.
Although they are not fancy cottage gardens or protected nature areas in themselves, our urban green spaces are a vitally important habitat for insects and pollinators particularly later in the year when the bramble in the area flowers.
Our highest priority is to remove the historic incredibly dangerous and unsightly wire fences which boxes in nature and traps litter. From chatting with local residents these wire fences have been broken since the 80’s at least!!
Medium priority is to create steps down the slope at the Kett’s cave park. Lastly is to create a wildflower meadow and plant fruit trees.
Our grassroot sketch of our plans to improve our green places in Pockthorpe, Norwich, NR3. We are still in the early stages of specifics with the council.
