A Shropshire company will be working closely with the County's Wildlife Trust as it develops its rural grounds. (22nd September 2014)

The British Ironwork Centre, Oswestry, proud home to Shropshire's first Sculpture Park, will be working in partnership with Shropshire Wildlife Trust who will support and advise the Centre in developing the Park in a way that complements the natural environment, preserving and promoting the existence of the many varieties of wildlife onsite.

John Hughes and Julie Jones of the Trust visited the Centre's Chairman, Clive Knowles, to provide environmental guidance and information together with suggestions for cultivating and encouraging the growth of wild flowers and additional bee and butterfly projects that could be successfully undertaken within the Centre's beautiful 90 acre site.

Mr Knowles said "We are indebted to John and Julie both for their time and their specialist advice which will be invaluable as we take the Sculpture Park project forwards. We want to ensure that we are sensitive to environmental concerns, and use our grounds to develop projects which will capture the imagination of youngsters and promote their interest in wildlife of all varieties."

"We will be offering support to the Trust in return, perhaps through the creation of trophies to celebrate the efforts of their many volunteers and corporate partners."

"Watch this space for some exciting "cross-pollination" as we put our knowledge, skills and ideas together!"
