The Environment Times' Pollinator Project was featured at the 20th Anniversary celebrations of the Lancashire Environmental Fund (LEF) in a special video showing as one of the highlighted projects supported by the fund in 2018.
The Pollinator Project was one of the many community and environmental projects in the region that have benefitted from their support. LEF is a partnership between SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK Ltd, Lancashire County Council, The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside and Community Futures. It has distributed over £25m of Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) grants support to community and environmental projects which benefit the environment and people of Lancashire since its start in 1998.
Environment Times initially established the Pollinator Project in 2015 next to their office to mark 21 years of the publication with initial support from The CK Group, AkzoNobel, Asda. Marks & Spencer and Kingfisher. Since then it has developed into a successful wildflower meadow insect haven, a community orchard and outdoor nature teaching/storytelling area. Take a look at the LEF's video of our project below.
