There has also been emphasis on encouraging wildflowers to grow in the open space.The work follows a survey that was carried out in the area at the start of the year, where local people were asked what improvements they wanted. A number of other suggestions are still being considered for a later date, should the project prove successful.The open space enhancement programme has been funded by a Community Councillor Grant from North Devon Councillor Rodney Cann.Cllr Cann said: "I am delighted to have driven this project forward, using my Community Councillor Grant funding. "This was in direct response to the wishes of local people, who asked me for an area of quiet reflection and relaxation. "I hope the community will agree we have now achieved this and will enjoy the open space for many years to come.
