Sponsored Nest Boxes


We sold a number of handmade nest boxes to local people for erection in the park.  Chris Sutcliffe Countryside Service and our treasurer put up the nest boxes on 4th April 2016.  A location map is in the noticeboard with the sponsor name and location of each box.  A big thank you to Chris for his kind help with this - at no cost! 

We have been lucky to have almost all boxes occupied too.
