Following the landscaping of the A453, Highways England promised residents that they would replace the daffodil bulbs that had to be uprooted during the redevelopment of the road. Pupils from Dovecote Primary School in Clifton were on hand to help Nottingham City Council and Lilian plant over 3,000 bulbs along the bank.
Lilian said “Last year I worked with local residents, Highways England and the City Council to improve the landscaping alongside the widened A453. I was delighted to join children and staff from Dovecote Primary School this morning to complete that work by planting bulbs alongside the road. The children really enjoyed getting their hands dirty and we are all looking forward to next spring when the banks will be covered with daffodils, narcissi and crocuses.”
