Coronation Meadows launched by Prince Charles aimed to create a wildflower meadow in each county to commemorate the diamond jubilee.
" I read Plantlife’s 2012 report and fully appreciated just how many wildflower meadows had been lost over the past 60 years. This year, we are celebrating my mother’s coronation so surely there is no better moment to end this destruction and to stimulate a new mood to protect our remaining meadows and to use them as springboards for the restoration of other sites and the creation of new meadows right across the UK.” - HRH The Prince of Wales, March 2013
Woodlands in partnership with Notts Wildlife Trust is proud to be the Coronation Meadow for Nottinghamshire. Seeds will be harvested from Ashtons Meadow and used to regenerate the area adjacent to the canal from Doefield Dun lock up to the marina drive entrance.
