Spring is in the air and the next phase of a project to improve the play area and Memorial Gardens in Neath Hill is about to start. 
The Project So Far 
The play area and memorial garden area project commenced in 2019 to improve the play area and surrounding open space. 
In 2021 and 2022, improvements to the play area were completed and a sculpture was installed. In the Summer of 2022, the area was transformed when vibrant murals were painted on the walled sides of the memorial gardens by MK College students, to make the area bright, fun, and inviting.

What’s Next 
Now the focus has turned to the memorial garden area, with the plan to create a relaxing area for residents to connect with nature. The area is to be transformed with shrubs, herbs, and wildflowers. 
Importance of Wildflowers 
It has been widely reported that there has been a drastic loss of 97% of UK wildflower meadows in recent years, leading to a subsequent decline in biodiversity. 
Benefits of Wildflowers 
• connect people with the natural world 
• enable individuals and communities to actively increase biodiversity 
• transform underused spaces into vibrant living landscapes 
• help pollinators that are currently under threat 
• contribute to pride of place 
• provide opportunities to learn about nature and biodiversity
