Be Wildlife Friendly!
Villagers are trying to be wildlife friendly where possible. Below are some things you can do to help and encourage wildlife around the village and to your garden.
AMPHIBIANS - FROGS, NEWTS AND TOADS
If you want to attract amphibians to your garden a pond is an ideal way to do this. Please visit this page on the RHS web site on how to build a pond and this page on the RHS website to find out how to attract amphibians to your garden.
Something to get the kids involved in is building bird boxes for the visiting garden birds. By visiting the RSPB website you can find out how to do this.
If you want to club together with neighbours and build a hedgehog highway, please visit the Hedgehog Street website where it gives instructions on how to build one.
