Saturday 17th May 2014: Bollington Carnival Parade

Wildlife Explorers enjoyed a hot, sunny day at Bollington Carnival.
Explorers and their families joined the parade in fancy dress to promote
The RSPB’s ‘Give Nature a Home’ campaign.

As well as wildlife masks, costumes and fluffy toys there were also some head-dresses that depicted a birdbox, a bee house and a wildflower meadow.

Our star balloon modeller walked in the parade wearing a hedgehog mask and ‘hogitat’ on his head!

 Leader Dave arrived to take some photos and even took the helm of the parade at one point.

 
 
 
 
Our stand at the ATAX Field was busy all afternoon, with long queues for face painting and balloons.

The stall featured lots of information about wildlife, The RSPB and our September WOW event.  Visitors could also choose from a selection of pin badges and a range of RSPB sales goods.

We also made 24 insect homes which will count towards our target of 1,000 new homes for nature this year.
