Lapford news:  Members of the Lapford community have been working to make the new space at Lower Town Place more wildlife friendly. They have carried out various plantings, including a hedge around one boundary, and shrubs, trees and wild flowers in other areas. A hedgehog hotel (hibernaculum), and a reptile and amphibian home have been built in one corner. Nestboxes have also been erected. It is hoped that this can be part of a bigger strategy to enhance wildlife areas in the whole village.
