Families from Cleeve enjoyed a nature hunt around Millennium Gardens to celebrate the completion of some improvement works.

Villagers made bug hotels and tested out the new paths which have made the area, behind Bishops Mead, more accessible.

Improvements were carried out at the gardens after Bristol Airport Local Community Fund awarded a £4,500 grant to Cleeve Parish Council.

Bristol Airport spokesman Jacqui Mills said: “We are delighted to support the Millennium Gardens project.

“It is an invaluable asset in the centre of the village, providing local families the opportunity of enjoying a green open space with planting and landscaping which will encourage wildlife and wild flowers, now and in the future.”

Three new trees were planted in the gardens and a lectern has been installed to inform visitors about the wildflowers, hedgerows and trees in the area.
