Rossendale Free Press - - Family Announcements -

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.”
