Soroptimists go Wild with Flowers

Crosby’s Soroptimists have planted out over two hundred native wildflowers at Lunt Meadows.

Club members tended the flowers from seed at home over several months. Varieties included ox-eye daisy, field scabious and ragged robin. The flowers are now strong enough to have a good chance of surviving in the wild.

This is another example of SI Crosby’s ongoing partnership with the Wildlife Trust (Lancashire, Manchester & North Merseyside). The nature reserve at Lunt, near Crosby, is a haven for wildlife. The wildflower meadows are part of the Trust’s drive to enhance the experience for visitors, as well as to increase biodiversity.

Chris Smith, President of SI Crosby, said: “This was a simple, practical way of working with the Wildlife Trust. We all really enjoyed contributing – in this small way – to our local environment.”
