No Mow May is an increasingly popular movement that encourages individuals, communities, and local authorities to let their grassy areas grow wild during the month of May. By abstaining from mowing lawns and green spaces, people can help wildflowers and native plants thrive, providing valuable food sources for bees, butterflies, and other insects.

Brixworth Parish Council’s decision to support No Mow May sends a powerful message to the community and sets a positive example for other local authorities. The campaign aligns perfectly with broader global efforts to combat biodiversity loss and protect fragile ecosystems.

There are several compelling reasons for endorsing the No Mow May campaign. First and foremost, it helps pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, by providing them with a rich source of nectar and pollen. In recent years, there has been a concerning decline in pollinator populations, a trend that has serious implications for food production and the overall health of our ecosystems. Allowing wildflowers to flourish is a simple yet effective way to combat this decline.

Brixworth Parish Council is setting a positive example for the community by supporting No Mow May. The council’s commitment to promoting biodiversity through this campaign will not only create beautiful green spaces but also make a significant contribution to the preservation of our natural world. By participating in No Mow May, Brixworth residents can join this vital effort to protect our environment and encourage the flourishing of local wildlife.

For health and safety reasons, our parks and recreational areas will continue to be maintained during May.
