2014 Wildflower Meadow in the Byes

Keith Owen Fund awards Friends of The Byes £640 towards the cost of planting more wildflowers in Sid Meadow this spring

Generous donations meant Friends of the Byes have hit their target, raising an impressive £231.21. Any surplus will be used to fund more wildflowers in the Byes.
