'Beeswax has recently committed to the new Mid Tier Countryside Stewardship environmental scheme. This formal scheme complements our existing schemes as well as a number of voluntary initiatives that we have put in place.
We are mindful that uncropped areas are attractive to walkers, particularly if you have a dog and your arms are being pulled out of your sockets! We would really appreciate it if you could stick to designated footpaths and hopefully we will see the environmental biodiversity of Nocton increase. Many of the margins are designed to encourage nesting birds whilst others are designed to produce pollen and nectar for the birds to feed on.
In due course we would like to share with you some of our successes, as well as the areas where we are perhaps not doing so well!
Please feel free to contact the Beeswax Office if you would like any further information.'
