“As Kynren grows and the site expands to include other attractions alongside the show, our aim is to provide a visually stunning visitor experience with an abundance of flora and fauna. Across the Kynren site we will feature many heritage plants which will not only enhance our visitor experience but also increase biodiversity value and create more habitats for wildlife.” Eleanor Richardson, Marketing & sales coordinator at Johnsons of Whixley said: “It’s great to be associated with the UK’s leading outdoor live-action show, we were already aware of Kynren as our chairman John Richardson had attended one of the shows last year and commented on how fantastic it was. “Adding such quantities of native trees and shrubs reinforces Kynren’s ‘green’ and environmental credentials”.
