Deep ploughing in Sunniside

A number of concerns have been raised recently by residents of Sunniside and Streetgate about the state of the field overlooking the Whinnies between the two villages. It appeared that a large part of the field had been dug up and many were concerned that a development was about to take place.

Liberal Democrats can now inform you that the work carried out was deep ploughing, by the Woodland Trust, who maintain neighbouring Lotties Wood. The aim is to help meadow flowers to grow at the location but to give them a fighting start, need ploughing was needed to kill the weeds at the location.

Hopefully by the summer there will be a good display of meadow plants.
