Helping the recovery of Field Cow-Wheat in Area 3
Every year since October 2016, staff from Camps Highways collaborate with CES (our sister company) and several members of the Area 3 Soft Estate team, to join with the Species Recovery Trust to do work on Highways England land along the M27, adjacent to the Portsdown Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
The aim of the work was to aid the recovery of Field Cow-wheat (FCW), a plant that is becoming increasingly rare in western Europe. It was planted in the Portsdown SSSI in 1999 as part of a drive to conserve the species nationally, but plant numbers there had dwindled to 750 by 2015 (which still made it the largest site in Britain).
Shelter for Kids Love Nature Kindergarten
In September a team from Area 3 designed and built a shelter for the Kids Love Nature Kindergarten at Marwell Zoo. The shelter was really well received.
“We wanted to pass on a huge thanks from all of us here at Kids Love Nature to you and the team who came to build our shelter. It is such a beautiful job, especially the added touch on the roof! The children have enjoyed exploring, playing and having stories read in there and it adds a whole new dimension to our garden. Thank you to the builders who were so flexible with working around our day, and even adapting some requests in the moment such as the step.
We are really grateful that we have this new wonderful addition to our space and can't thank you enough.”
