Stamullen Tidy Towns- Plants removed!!!
Earlier this year we planted the area along Crowe’s wall as a wildlife bio-diversity garden. This involved planting species that encourage butterflies, bees, hedgehogs and wildlife in general. Over time this planting will develop and overcome the weeds that can be seen at present. A lot of work has gone into the selection and planting of this area. Unfortunately over the last week someone has removed all three of the Red Lobelia that we planted!!!! We would ask if anyone is noticed interfering with the area that it be relayed to any member of the committee as such actions are very disheartening to our small dedicated group of volunteers.
