Saturday 19th March 2016: Celebration Planting

Heritage Walk plus WEx

The 30th Anniversary celebrations for Macclesfield RSPB Wildlife Explorers continued with a special event where volunteers from the group and Food4Macc worked together on a planting project at Heritage Walk in the centre of town. The children had chosen a selection of pollinator-friendly plants by voting at an earlier indoor meeting and set about planting them with great enthusiasm.

The hard-working team also successfully refurbished twoJunior Leaders working hard! hibernation hotels – specially constructed invertebrate habitats – that will provide plenty of safe havens for overwintering creepy crawlies.

Like any anniversary celebration the session was rounded off with plenty of smiles and slices of tasty cake.
