Community Pollinator Gardens for Crumlin Glen and Wallace Park

 

Crumlin Integrated Primary School and Templepatrick Action Community Association have both been successful in their application for funding from the Live Here Love Here Rural Community Pollinator Grant Scheme.

Crumlin Integrated Primary School and Templepatrick Action Community Association have both been successful in their application for funding from the Live Here Love Here Rural Community Pollinator Grant Scheme. As a result Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has granted permission to both groups to start work on planting at Crumlin Glen and Wallace Park respectively.

This pilot scheme is entirely funded by DEARA via Live Here Love Here and provides grants to community groups and schools wishing to establish, enhance or develop a local community pollinator garden to increase the biodiversity significance in the area. Both projects align with the local Biodiversity and Climate Change Action Plans. The two groups will now work with the Council to agree suitable locations.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey Councillor Billy Webb said;

“The addition of two new Community Pollinator Gardens is great news for the Borough. We must all make small changes now to help with the Global Climate Change issues facing us all.”
