Buxton Town Team has planted a mammoth 5,500 bulbs as part of its mission to improve Buxton’s Ashwood Park.

A dozen volunteers sowed the bulbs, a mixture of native woodland flowers, in the wooded area near Morrisons.

They were purchased using funding from the Bingham Trust.

Project leader Richard Lower said: “We have been working to improve the park for the past three years, and the comments from those who use it have been very positive.”
