Members of the committee, councillors and residents backing onto the council-owned green belt behind the odd numbered houses on Highfield Avenue were invited to an event recently to hear about the council's management of the land and how the space is being used for educational purposes. Guy Belcher, the city's biodiversity officer, told us about how they have been able provide better habitats for wildlife, while two HPA residents, Helen Crisp from Brunswick Nursery School and Ruth Sapsed from Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination, were among teachers and charity managers who have been granted licences to use the space for a few hours a week for educational purposes. It was good to hear how the space is being managed in a pro-active way by the City council to benefit the biodiversity of the area and the local community.
