Operation Pollination Pledge

Oswestry Town Mayor Jay Moore is pleased on behalf of Oswestry Town Council to sign an 'Operation Pollination' pledge in partnership with Borderland Rotary Club on Friday 1st of July.

Operation Pollination is a Rotary International initiative that links local Rotary Clubs with local councils, schools, colleges, groups and businesses who undertake to take every opportunity to improve local bio-diversity in their communities.

The project goals are:

1. To increase and improve pollination habitats.

2. to develop strategic partnerships to improve and create pollination habitats

3. Encourage local action through collaborative local projects

4. Encourage the development of educational opportunities to increase the awareness of the importance of pollinators in our community.

Borderland Rotary Club has been busy signing up local councils, schools and businesses to join them in enhancing pollinator habitats in and around the Oswestry area. This work is essential as to date we have lost 60% of the pollinators we rely on locally to help grow our food!
