Our New Bug Hotel at De Frene

A very big thank you to everyone who attended our Community Volunteer Day on Saturday! We created a fantastic bug hotel!

Our task was to build a new bug hotel in our wildlife area. We also improved the area through planting and tidying. The finished article was fantastic. We are sure to start seeing some new residents very soon! The children also enjoyed some pond dipping and we all enjoyed some great food.

Conservation and biodiversity are important subjects. Improving habitats and encouraging wildlife to take up residence benefits us all. Much of what we learnt on Saturday can be replicated in our gardens, or even in window boxes.

The next Community Volunteer Day will be held on Saturday 22nd April 2017 (a week later than usual due to Easter). We will be hosting a Capital Growth ‘Big Dig’ event. More information will follow.
