We are planning an exciting new project with the aim of enhancing and assessing the wild flowers in the villages of Thurne, Ashby and Oby.


Wild flowers are very vulnerable in many ways and some of the ones that we can remember from the past have disappeared: Orchids from Dubeck, Violets near the Church, Lady’s Smock on the marshes...


However Thurne, Ashby and Oby are still great places for wild flowers to flourish and with some consideration and planning we think we could add greatly to what we already have.


Having as wide a variety of wild flowers as possible will not only complement the visual appearance of our villages and be very beneficial to bees and butterflies and other pollinating insects. It will also benefit all of us in return.
