None of us can have failed to notice (with our Covid-19 exercise-regimes) our local villages and landscape bursting into wild and not-so-wild bloom. Some of us may not have noticed, however, that the Eynsham Parish Council (EPC) is taking a new lead in fostering this natural beauty in Eynsham (article by Parish Councillors Ross Macken and Sue Osborne, Eynsham News, April-May). The NRN has suggested pilot areas for increasing wildflowers and the council is inviting opinions in a formal consultation.
