AN ADVENTURE playground is getting an environmental boost thanks to The Co-operative Funeralcare.
The funeral home in Lower Bridge Street, Chester, has donated 60 packets of wildflower seeds to Blacon Adventure Playground to help encourage bees, butterflies and moths, as part of The Co-operative’s Plan Bee campaign.
Paul Noon, manager of the playground, said: “We are creating a wildflower area within the grounds, so we are really grateful for the seeds to give the section an initial boost.”
The Co-operative’s Plan Bee campaign, which was launched three years ago, supports research into the native British honeybee, takes action on pesticide usage and has given away over one million packets of wildflower seeds to provide pollen and nectar for bees and other pollinators.
Plan Bee is an integral part of The Co-operative’s Ethical Plan, which was re-launched in February.
