Urban Buzz is the Buglife project to establish sites that support pollinators in eight cities across the UK. It was launched in leicester last month. We are proposing some sites in Knighton as possible places where Urban Buzz could carry out projects. These are the Attenborough Arboretum (if Leicester University is interested), Knighton Park, Kenwood Way Green Space, Dawson Way Green Space and verge and island areas on Palmerston Way.
We shall be walking round these possible sites with Nick Packham from Urban Buzz Leicester, starting at 2.00 pm on Wednesday 15th November at the Attenborough Arboretum. Access to the Arboretum is now via the College Court entrance on Knighton Road – walk down through the car park to the left of the reception building.
If you plan to come, let us know in case we cancel or postpone if the weather is bad. You can email:
