New Castle Brooks Information Board

New Castle Brooks Information Board

Castle Brooks now has a brand new notice board on the green. We are calling it Oak Tree Corner in recognition, and a big thank you, to local residents for saving the two large oak trees just nearby.

Thank you is also due to Framlingham Town Council and the Unitarian Trust for grant funding towards the costs of the noticeboard - some of which is made from recycled plastic.

The idea for this arose through our WhatsApp group, which started as a result of setting up Covid support and is still going strong. We decided to become more involved in maintaining our green in a way which encourages biodiversity.

The noticeboard will be a great way to let people know about the wildlife found in the park (birds, insects, plants & trees) and we hope to keep an updated species list. It will also be used post news on events happening in Castle Brooks, and local art activities.

We have met with East Suffolk Council and Norse Waveney to set up a mutually agreed management plan, one that will foster both the re-wilding and biodiversity of the park, and make it a great place for people to play and picnic. Better health and wellbeing all round.
