Choosing pollen-rich flowers for our gardens will help provide much-needed food for our bumblebees and other pollinating insects. These pollinating insects are in decline with one third of the 99 bee species at risk of extinction. There are many pollinator friendly plants to choose from and they will make for beautiful colourful gardens.
Despite the rain, thirty three Volunteers including six Transition Year students took to the streets last Sunday for the weekly litter pick. Most of the usual areas were covered and twelve bags in total were collected.
