 Published on: 11th October 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

A St Albans action group have been working hard to install a ‘pollinator highway’ to benefit bees in St Albans city centre.

Wilderhood Watch, a resident action group, who focus on sustainable local projects and campaigns, first installed planters around the clock tower at the end of May and since then more have been added with the support of local businesses.

Nadia of Wilderhood Watch provided an update on the highway: “The St Albans City Centre pollinator highway is really coming along and is being run primarily by BID and councillor Mandy McNeil.”

One local business who have joined the highway, The Boot on Boot Alley, has created a second story planter display.

Nadia added that he action group are in collaboration with several groups in St Albans. They are working alongside Friends of the Earth to promote the ’20 is plenty’ speed campaign with the help of the Wilderhood Watch hedgehog signs to encourage drivers to slow down.

She said: “As you can see all of our projects involve not only collaboration between neighbours on a street level but collaboration between neighbours on a street level, but collaboration with the council and groups such as Friends of the Earth.”
