Brookmead School would like to pass on their thanks to the Wing and Ivinghoe Community Board for their funding towards the clearance of the Whistlebrook. Over the years, both Ivinghoe and Pitstone Parish Councils had passed on local concerns regarding the danger of dead and un-coppiced trees, along with debris, in the brook. Wing and Ivinghoe Community Board liaised with Buckinghamshire Council to arrange a grant towards the necessary safety works. The company concerned were recommended by Ivinghoe Parish Council, having previously quoted for the works, and they carried out a full survey of the area, including of the local wildlife, prior to works starting.
Brookmead School look forward to the brook flourishing now that it has been looked after and can’t wait to show our children how responsible wildlife management encourages a rich and diverse habitat.
