End of Phase 1, project update - February 2022

Project introduction


The Parish Council is working with Ifold Estates Ltd to revamp The Drive, Ifold bus stop area. After all, it’s currently an unsightly derelict mess! However, with the guidance of Butterfly Conservation and support of Natural Gardens the aim is to turn it into a bio-diverse conservation heaven for our rare Wood White butterfly and other minibeasts.

How can you help with the project?

As part of this project and the Parish Council’s ongoing Safer Bus Stop initiative the current bus shelter on the site will be carefully dismantled and a new bespoke timber shelter will be built at a different location on the site. Some of the existing shelter materials will be retained to be reused. We are looking for volunteers who can help to dismantle the bus shelter, help with scrub clearance and, of course, plant up the area in the spring!

You don't need any skills/knowledge - just enthusiasm.

If you would like to get involved please contact the Parish Council Clerk.
