A group of volunteers from The Macclesfield Big Bird Box Build attending the Cheshire Wildlife Trust Quinta Reserve Forest School Open Day to make nestboxes with children from a visiting school.
The reserve is adjacent to another CWT site, Swettenham Meadows, which will benefit from a selection of Big Bird Box Build nestboxes. It was wonderful making nestboxes so close to the setting where they will be installed when they are completed. Children had lots of fun making the boxes and even had to be dragged away from the workbenches for hot chocolate!
The President of Cheshire Wildlife Trust, Felicity Goodey, gave the team a very warm welcome in her introduction to the event, embracing our project ethos and extolling the virtues of organisations working in partnership. Also attending were Reserves Manager, Joe Pimblett, who has been a key supporter of our project team, the Chief Excutive Officer , Charlotte Harris, Trust members and education staff.
