Volunteers get stuck into seed-sowing session along Melbourn to Shepreth cycle path

More than 60 helpers have volunteered to sow wildflower seeds on the verge next to the new Melbourn to Shepreth cycle path – and more help is needed today!
The A10 Corridor Cycle campaigners, led by Susan van de Ven, were thrilled to see the path open – and now have had two ‘wonderfully successful’ working parties help to scatter seeds along the route thanks to a grant from the TTP Group.
Orwell Scouts, Cubs, Melbourn Village College Duke of Edinburgh volunteers and many others including Melbourn-to-Royston work commuters have all got stuck in to support the campaign’s mission to get funding for the final link.
Susan said: “We have benefitted from donations of high-vis gear from Skanska and six rakes from Manit for the children taking part.”
The working party will take place this afternoon from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

All are welcome along, bring a rake if possible and meet at the path just south of the Phillimore Garden Centre.
