Forest Road/Epinal Way Roundabout

The High Sheriff met Harry and Pat Cook who have worked tirelessly to make theĀ Forest Road/Epinal Way Roundabout into ‘now arguably the most well tended and visually attractive roundabout in Leicestershire’.

The site now has over 6000 Spring Flowers, various annual and perennial Summer Floral Displays, several Wildflower Plots, a Fairy Trail for local small children, a Mushroom Seat story-telling area, Young Fruit Trees, Bird Boxes, Bug Hotels and a Hedgehog House.

Although much of the hard graft is done by Harry & Pat themselves, they now provide volunteering opportunities for Students from Mountfields Lodge and Hardwick House schools, Glebe House Allotment Project, Local Scout Groups and others.

Over recent years, Harry has won many local, regional and national awards and the Green Belt has been a major annual contributor to Loughborough in Bloom’s successes in East Midlands in Bloom and Britain in Bloom.
