The Caravan and Motorhome Club has announced that it is to take part ‘No Mow May’.
No Mow May is Plantlife’s annual campaign encouraging people not to mow during May and to help provide spaces for nature to thrive by letting long grass and wildflowers grow naturally.
Natasha Shane, head of strategic product development and sustainability for the Caravan and Motorhome Club said: “The Club is excited to support No Mow May for the second year running and we have strong support from our campsites.
“Many of the campsites teams are working hard on biodiversity initiatives with support from Green Tourism who are advising them on how to implement simple changes to attract wildlife and create a wonderful natural environment for Club members to enjoy on campsites.”
“We are looking forward to seeing the ‘before and after’ images of the campsites at the end of No Mow May and to see how the wildflowers and wildlife have flourished.”
Since the 1970’s nearly 97 per cent of flower rich meadows have been lost, and that means a vital loss of food needed by pollinators like bees and butterflies – which are also at risk of disappearing.
