Pollinator Patches

Lancaster Beekeepers have been busy creating pollinator patches around the villages of Caton and Hornby, and at the Crook of Lune. The patches are usually small unkept corners of ground which the volunteers have identified. After obtaining landowner support and permissions the sites have been cleared, seeded and then left to nature! This summer the annual wildflowers are blooming and buzzing with life, thanks to a small grant from Champion Bowland and lots of hard work and commitment – well done everyone!
