An urban meadow has been sown at Haven Bridge.

A perennial bee and butterfly mix has been introduced this year to supplement the native and non-native annuals. Extra soil has also been imported to the site courtesy of Vere Bros (Contractors) Ltd. The Boston in Bloom project helps to “bring the countryside into the town” connecting habitat to aid the movement of pollinators in the wider landscape. Pollinating insects are in national decline and play an important role in food production.
