ECO DAY in and around CHRIST CHURCH WALMSLEY on SATURDAY 17 FEBRUARY:

Thank you to everyone who helped with – or came along to participate in – the activities at our ECO DAY. Everyone seems to have had a great time … see if you can spot the new nesting boxes as you walk through the grounds up at Christ Church Walmsley and the bug hotel as you walk around the back of church.
Thank you to HOWARTH TIMBER & BUILDING SUPPLIES, who donated all the materials for making the nesting boxes.
Huge thanks also to Ken Holt, who was the inspiration for the activity, to Nick Hitchen, who cut, prepped and assisted youngsters in the making of the nesting boxes, and to Aubrey McCreesh, Phil Shaw and Jenny Murphy, who helped on the day with building the BUG HOTEL and litter picking.
