Wild Flower Beds in Spout Yard Park, Summer 2019

Beautiful Wild Flower Beds

Planted by children with the Louth Wildlife Watch, in April 2018, these wildlife havens are really coming into their own this year.

These native wild flowers are particularly good for native insects. They have been such a success that we are planning more areas of the park dedicated to wildlife.

Heavy Rainfall Floods Park

Early June rainfall caused the Lud to swell and overflow the steps and lower seating area. The new Louth Flood Defences were maintaining the flow rate, and the water only breached where we have steps down to the waters edge.

The water has now subsided, leaving behind a thick trail of silt. Any volunteers to help clean up?
