The Landscape Group (TLG) has recently supported the Great Waltham Horticultural Society by providing some bat and bird box kits to support their family events.
The village of Great Waltham in Mid Essex has a Horticultural Society going back more than 130 years. The Society host numerous family workshops and events throughout the year. The highlight of the year is the annual flower and produce show held in September, which attracts over 1,000 entries every year, half from children.
23 children have recently taken part in a bird box decorating workshop and exhibited their decorated boxes at the Village Art Show which kicks off the Spring and Summer festival.
All of the boxes were decorated beautifully and the children are also hoping to enter the boxes into the annual flower and produce show in September. Following the show in September, it is likely that the boxes will then find their way into gardens around the local area.
