Go Wild in Your Garden Competition – Winners Announced

As part of the Naturehood project, we ran a competition to encourage people to create something for wildlife in their gardens.  Our thanks to Anglian Water for supporting the competition.

We are delighted to announce the winners of the competition:

Junior Category: Reuben Cresswell, Age 9, The Bug Ritz Hotel – made from old bricks and roofing gables left when his grandmother’s roof was repaired.  He has used some old flowerpots, bits of garden edging, pieces of broken pallet inside to make layers and some old broken bamboo canes.  He filled the inside with leaves twigs and plant stalks from weeding and topped up with some leaf mulch which introduced ants, centipedes, and other creatures.

Adult Category: George Cooper.  He made bird feeder station and used parts of an old trampoline in its construction.

Congratulations to our winners.  George wins a water butt kindly provided by Anglian Water together with a nature themed goodie bag, and Reuben wins a £25 Amazon voucher and a nature themed goodie bag.
