MP voices his support for wildlife
RAMSBOTTOM MP James Frith stressed his commitment to wildlife concerns on a recent visit to a Wildlife Trust nature reserve.
Mr Frith, who was voted in as Bury North Labour MP for the first time earlier this year, dropped in to the Summerseat reserve in his constituency.
On his tour, Mr Frith discussed his understanding of ecosystems, Natural Capital, climate change and how important the environment is in any Brexit talks.
He also stressed the important role the environment has in mental health and wellbeing. He met Lancashire Wildlife Trust chief executive Anne Selby, policy officer David Dunlop, East Lancashire Reserves Officer Kim Coverdale, Wildlife Trust trustee Geoff Higginbottom, leading reserve volunteer Noell Leather and other volunteers who have helped turn the derelict site into an oasis for wildlife.
Mr Frith said: “You have gained my attention with these environmental issues and I hope it’s going to be a long-term relationship. I do have some allergies, so while nature may not be James Frith-friendly, James Frith is nature-friendly.”
