Well tended grounds that visitors and locals can enjoy, that enhance the look of the village

How would you suggest the space for nature/biodiversity be improved at Beer Jubilee?

This would be best as a sensory garden with textures and smells as it is inter coastal and difficult to create wider biodiversity. Could add a sculpture park and outdoor working areas for WFH or picnics

Outdoor spaces are vital for mental health and wilderness is not an attractive place for people to benefit

With some designated and maintained space for wildflowers, instead of merely letting invasive weeds etc. grow unchecked.

keep the grass by the paths mown and strim the rest once or twice a year. More bird and bat boxes.

see above. increased wildflower sowings. Perhaps an interpretation board explaining the rationale for the management plan. See the plan commissioned by Beer Parish Council a few years ago.

Love that much of the Jubilee is left for nature, but it is nice to have clearer spots available to sit when there are village events such as regatta

There needs to be a balance between areas being left for nature and recognising that this is also amenity space.

How would you suggest the space for nature/biodiversity be improved at Beer Jubilee?

areas left for nature for the bulk of the time but accepting that this is amenity space for the locals and visitors and working with the village to identify dates and spaces that need to be managed more

I think there needs to be a wider discussion around the areas of the Jubilee to be managed (the answers to the above question were too restrictive) but also around dates of village events and the need for cutting before these dates to allow the community to benefit from this space
