If you, or someone you know locally, would like help with getting shopping, dog walking, other errands or friendly phone-calls, please email Alexandra Ward Mutual Aid and you will be put in touch with the contact for your street (you can also email them if you do not live in this ward, and they will tell you who your ward contact is).

But if the invertebrates were to disappear, the world’s ecosystems would collapse.’ The charity recently officially launched its 'B-Lines' maps. 'B-Lines' are pollinator friendly…
