Havant MP makes the ‘Pollinator Promise’ with local schoolchildren
Havant MP Alan Mak visited youngsters at St Alban’s CE Primary School in Leigh Park to see how pupils are working on an award-winning project to encourage residents to grow bee and other pollinator-friendly plants.
The MP commited to the ‘Pollinator Promise’ and will dedicate some space for the project at Langstone Technology Park, where his constituency office is located.
He said: “I was inspired to see the enthusiasm and dedication pupils from St Alban’s had for the environment. The ‘Pollinator Promise’ is a fantastic project that the whole community has wholeheartedly supported. I was delighted to add my support to the campaign, and I look forward to welcoming the pupils to my constituency office at Langstone Technology Park to plant a bed of pollinator friendly plants. I would encourage everyone to make the Pollinator Promise.”
The ‘Pollinator Promise’ campaign, which is supported by the Government, developed from the Polli:Nation ‘Art with a Message’ competition.
The Heritage Lottery Fund support the project which has been developed by Learning through Landscapes helping schools to improve bio-diversity.
In a statement on the MP’s website, Nicola Hordell, headteacher at St Alban’s Primary said it was great to tell Mr Mak about the Pollinator Promise project.
She said: “We are delighted that he will be putting the promise into action and the pupils are looking forward to visiting his constituency office to plant some pollinator-friendly plants.”
