A HAGLEY garden centre is inviting youngsters to show their love of birds by decorating a nest box.

Children can take part in half-term workshops at Webbs garden centre from Monday February 17 to Friday February 21, organised to coincide with National Nest Box Week which aims to encourage everyone to put up nest boxes to help breeding birds.

Youngsters will be able to decorate a wooden nest box and take it home for the garden after the sessions which run from 11am to 4pm each day.

Webbs chairman Ed Webb said: “It’s a great time to remind ourselves to encourage our local bird life and children will love decorating these ready-made nest boxes.

“The natural nest sites on which many of our bird species depend, such as holes in trees and buildings, are fast disappearing as gardens and woods are ‘tidied’ and old houses are repaired.

This is just one small way of helping to ensure we are doing all we can to help our bird population.”

The sessions cost £4.99 to include all materials.
