#NoMowMay Encourages Pollinators

Ludlow Town Council Encourages Pollinators with No Mow May

Ludlow Town Council is pleased to welcome back Plantlife’s campaign, No Mow May. The annual campaign encourages residents and local authorities to allow lawns and green spaces to grow wild throughout May, allowing wildlife and habitats to flourish. 

By joining this initiative Ludlow Town Council and residents can actively contribute to the preservation of biodiversity. Since the 1930’s, we’ve lost approximately 97% of flower-rich meadows. These flower-rich meadows are a vital food source for pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

No Mow May presents an opportunity to create sanctuaries for pollinators and to help tackle pollution.

Ludlow Town Council has identified several key areas within the community where grass will be allowed to grow freely during May:

Housman Crescent Play Area:

Linney Riverside Park

Henley Orchards

Weyman Road 


All sites will have posters displayed to make it clear that the grass hasn’t simply been forgotten.

A healthy lawn with some long grass and wildflowers benefits wildlife, tackles pollution and locks away carbon below ground. Join Ludlow Town Council with #NoMowMay and help cultivate a greener future.
