Planting in the Rain

More wildflowers for Lunt

Crosby’s Soroptimists have planted out hundreds of native wildflower seedlings at Lunt Meadows Nature Reserve. As last year, many members tended the flowers from seed at home in readiness for transferring to the reserve.

Soroptimist Terry Francis said: “The weather was against us – drizzle, light rain, then (once we were well into the work) a downpour. We just kept going!

“Simple work at the reserve – like this – is part of our ongoing partnership with the Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester & North Merseyside.

Very many thanks to Alasdair and Chris – two Soroptimisters who helped with the planting. When we all see the flowers in bloom next year, we’ll know that getting wet was really worthwhile.”
