Cumberland Council is teaming up with Cumbria Wildlife Trust and Cleator Moor Town Council to host a Planting for Pollinators talk.

Set for March 25 at the Cleator Moor Town Council office in Market Square, the talk will offer an exploration of pollinators, their importance, and ways individuals can contribute to the Planting for Pollinators initiative.

The event, aimed at fostering awareness for pollinators and their habitats, is open to everyone.

Attendees should RSVP to Charlotte Rankin at to secure a place.

Cumberland Councillor Bob Kelly, executive member for Cumberland Policy and Regulatory Services, said: “We're committed to raising awareness about pollinators and their habitat needs, and this talk in Cleator Moor will be an ideal starting point for many people.

“We hope that the local community will come and join us at this talk, where discussions will take place about pollinating insects and how they rely on flowers for nectar and pollen, and how we can all help to play a part in improving our local areas for pollinators.”

The talk is set to start at 6.30pm and last until 7.30pm.
