Mark Cox as the Green Time Project Lead said “Green Time The Land of Butterflies focuses on nature and the importance of looking after nature within our local community, butterfly conservation and the need to make us all aware of protecting insects. Integrating this project into our wider Green Time Project enables us to bring people together from the different backgrounds and culture, through using crafts to create the carnival entry.”
