For the first time in its history, the Heritage Lottery Fund HLF has awarded a unique partnership of conservation organisations and local councils - led by Plantlife – a significant sum for a national project to save the UK’s remaining fragments of meadow. There were once natural wild flower meadows in every parish – today only 2% of the meadows that existed in the 1930's remain. Nearly 7.5 million acres of wildflower meadow have been lost so far and they are still being destroyed.
