Volunteers plant 1,500 bluebells and daffodils at Highbridge's Apex Park

Over 1,000 bluebells and 500 daffodils have been planted around Apex Park in Highbridge this week as a team of volunteers worked to get the grounds ready for Spring.

Several new colourful floral displays will burst into bloom around the Green Flag award winning park next year thanks to this week's work.

The Friends of Apex Park Improvements Group, along with a Sedgemoor Park Officer, met with their spades to plant the bluebell bulbs within the woodland walk area and the daffodil bulbs opposite the lake slipway.

Sedgemoor District Council thanked all of the volunteers who worked extremely hard, digging and planting for several hours.

Apex Park's new floral display will help the park continue to act as a haven for insects and animals as well as being a treat for visitors.

Pam Donovan told "I would like to say a big thank you to Sedgemoor District Council and the Friends of Apex Park for all their hard work. The Apex Park is used by thousands of people throughout the year."

"We have been awarded the Green Flag award again this year and to achieve this, the park is kept to a very high standard. We can only maintain this quality with the help of people like the Friends, so if you enjoy the park come along and join in the fun at our meetings which take place every month. Thanks also to Marina Turner for all your hard work."

And Marina Turner added: "It's only with the help from the volunteers who are the Friends of Apex Park and our Clean Surroundings Team and Parks Officers that Apex keeps being awarded its Green Flag Award. This year we gained the highest score ever and it's a joy to work with such enthusiastic individuals."

Those interested in the park and its wildlife can still enjoy the free Apex Park Wildlife Adventure Walk. Guide leaflets are available in the park by the interpretation board to the right of the lake slipway.
