Butterfly release to mark official opening

BUTTERFLIES will be released during the official opening of an outdoor community space in Clevedon on Sunday.

The Glebe Field, adjacent to St Andrew’s Church in Old Church Road, has been transformed from the town’s former donkey field into an attractive space featuring a nuttery, a new path way and seating.

It is hoped the land will become attractive to butterflies, in the hope they will eventually colonise the surrounding area, and there are also plans to house chickens in one area of the space.

The work has been carried out by volunteers as part of a church project and it is hoped schoolchildren could eventually get involved in the rearing of more butterflies for release into the wild.

The official opening will take place at 11am on Sunday, with Clevedon Town Council chairman Jon Middleton.
