Kettering BC on Twitter: “Pardon the weeds, we are feeding the bees! Look out for signs in the grass verges of #Kettering & #Corby Boroughs. We’re encouraging wildflowers to provide a valuable source of pollen at a time of year there isn’t much about for bees and pollinators. #NorthantsTogether @CorbyBC” / Twitter
