We support No Mow May with seed planting at Quedgeley School 

Our Bristol team has recently celebrated this year’s No Mow May with Hunts Grove Primary Academy by donating seed bombs which have been planted in the school’s Forest school area.

Our Bristol team donated wildflower seed bombs to Hunts Grove Primary Academy, which is located close to our The Quarters development. The seeds have been put to good use within the school’s Forest School, where they were planted by members of the school’s School Council to mark this year’s No Mow May. 

We have been supporting British conservation charity Plantlife’s ‘No Mow May’ initiative, helping to encourage wildlife to thrive.

According to Plantlife, the UK has lost 97% of its flower-rich meadows since the 1970s*, resulting in a drastic decrease in important food sources for pollinators. Throughout ‘No Mow May,’ individuals, businesses and organisations around the UK are invited to put the lawnmower away for a month to allow their grass to grow freely, resulting in many benefits to wildlife.

Rob Curry, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey Bristol, said: "We’re really pleased to be able to support Hunts Grove Primary Academy and their forest school, as well as marking this year’s No Mow May. We are committed to creating greener, healthier communities for our customers and taking part in No Mow May is one of the many ways we are doing just that. It’s a fantastic initiative and one that has a real benefit to our environment and we’re pleased to be playing our part to help.”
