We are a community group friends of Walton Hall Park. We have been working hard for 2 years now in the 130 acre park but there is a fenced off area that is three acres in size but it has been abandoned and over grown for more than 10 years. We want to concentrate on bugs and smaller wildlife community growing and have chickens and rabbits.
We would like to make a community wildlife garden and we are working with Rice lane farm to make it possible.
