Stafford Mount Regeneration Project
The Stafford Mount park is a greenspace at the very heart of Uplyme Village. It is already a public space, but is under-utilised as it is not very well-known about. The Council decided to regenerate the space to mitigate against climate change, to make the area more bio-diverse and to improvement public involvement and use of the space.
As the first phase of the regeneration of the Stafford Mount greenspace, the Council asked Mrs Ethelston’s Primary schoolchildren to submit designs to be installed within the garden. There were 4 categories: an entrance sign, 3 mosaic panels, a hedgehog habitat and an insect habitat. The Councillors who judged the designs, Cllr. Mrs Claire Wiscombe (who is leading the project) and Cllr. Colin Pratt were extremely impressed with the huge number of designs submitted.
On Monday 14th November, the Chair of the Parish Council, Cllr. Chris James and one of the judges, Cllr. Colin Pratt, handed out a certificate and prize to each of the winning entrants. Well done everyone!
The next phase will be for all the children to make the winning mosaic panels become a reality during after-school clubs, collection and donation of materials to make the habitats and creation of a seasonal and pollinator-friendly planting design, so if you are able to assist with any of that, then please get in touch with the Clerk via the contact page.
