Schools provide shelter for the local birds

   March 2018

 A GREENSPACES SOUTH CHESHIRE CIC PAGE

 

 

 

 

DOUG Butterill, Company Secretary of Greenspaces South Cheshire CIC, constructed the bird boxes that appear on this page. 

    Then he dismantled them into flat packs so that the pupils of the schools could assemble them for their teacher to put up. He proudly displays one of the boxes, here.

    Doug, a professional landscape gardener (retired) has been on the Nantwich scene for many decades, principally for his work with Nantwich in Bloom. He has since stood down as Chairman and

 

 

 

 

relinquished his membership.

  He was recently described as "a local wildlife expert", but he refutes that title, even though he has made bird boxes and boxes for hedgehogs to be safe in . . .!

   These were all made for the benefit of local pupils in extracurricular lessons.

Teacher Claire Morgan uses an electric drill to make the final hole in the tree to take a screw that will hold the new bird box in place.

She is surrounded by pupils of Weaver Primary School, Nantwich - some of whom are holding the ladder for her.
