Mystery circles appear on the grass at County Hall that had everyone guessing for a while. I’m delighted to say that they are the first step towards my vision of wild flowers planted instead of just overly mowed grass at County Hall.
When I discovered what they were I was like a child that had been given free run of the sweety shop! I have been pushing for this, for about a year and told by previous Environment Cabinet holders that, as reasonable as the request seems, it could not be done. I even had senior officers taking a sharp intake of breath and say no, it’s listed! I knew I had got a break through but imagined a small rectangular bed in a remote corner somewhere. This exceeded my dreams!
Well, showing the wonder of women power, this achievement is largely down to myself and 2 female officers just not accepting ‘no’ as a reasonable response. I cannot wait until we get planting. This probably seems a tiny achievement but it is a huge one in the face of bureaucracy!
Now thinking bug hotel and bee hives! Am I getting ahead of myself?
