Since the 1930s in the UK we've lost 97% of our wildflower meadows, and with them our critical pollinators such as bees and butterflies. To help reverse this decline, and to support the creation of a beautiful expanse of meadow to support Somerset's bees and butterflies, Somerset Wildlife Trust has created the Perrymead Wildflower Project — which aims to harvest seed from flower rich areas and sow it on species poor areas to create enriched habitats to support more pollinators.

To help fund this work the Trust has launched its first ever crowdfunding campaign to raise £5,000 by the 31st August and is hoping that people across the county who care about our bees and pollinators will donate to the fund.
