Formby pupil Jim aged 7-years-old has got hundreds of signatures on his petition for ‘No Mow Summer’


A 7-year-old pupil from Formby called Jim has managed to get hundreds of signatures on his petition for ‘No Mow Summer’. This is just like the ‘No Mow May’ campaign which is becoming more and more popular around the country with many councils.


Formby Labour Cllrs met with Jim who is a pupil at Our Lady’s School in Formby. Jims petition is titled "We Say Let It Grow”.



The petition is in support of the No Mow Summer campaign to let grass verges, such as those on the Formby bypass, grow wild. Labour Cllrs, Nina Killen, Catie Page and Chris Page have all signed the petition and have arranged to present it to the Cabinet member for Highways, Cllr John Fairclough in November. They will be asking Sefton Council to reduce the frequency of the mowing of the Formby bypass verges, in order to boost biodiversity and reduce traffic congestion.


Hundreds of Formby residents and school children have now signed Jim’s petition.


The petition is still available to sign at Formby pool, until Nov 5th.

No Mow May


No Mow May – the idea of avoiding mowing in May, was originally suggested by the charity Plantlife – and is quietly revolutionary and spread quickly since 2019 across the world.


Plantlife's annual campaign calling all garden owners and green space managers not to mow during May – liberating your lawns and providing a space for nature.


We’ve lost nearly 97% of flower rich meadows since the 1970’s and with them gone are vital food needed by pollinators, like bees and butterflies.


A healthy lawn with some long grass and wildflowers benefits wildlife, tackles pollution and can even lock away carbon below ground – and best of all, to reap these benefits all you have to do is not mow your lawn in May and beyond!


With over 20 million gardens in the UK, even the smallest grassy patches add up to a significant proportion of our land which, if managed properly, can deliver enormous gains for nature, communities and the climate. This is why Plantlife calls for people to get involved with this every year, and let wild plants get a head start on the summer.


Now people are getting involved in the #NoMowSummer campaign which is exactly the same but continues on throughout Summer.


Well done to 7-year-old Jim!!
