Ferryhill Town Council is once again providing local residents the opportunity to pick up a FREE bird box for their garden. Building on the success of last years project, which saw over 100 boxes being installed in residents gardens, school grounds and local parks, the Town Council has recently purchased an additional 50 open fronted bird boxes from Ferryhill based Endeavour Woodcrafts CIC, and are now offering the boxes to local residents free of charge on a first come first served basis, to encourage people to do their bit to help protect local wildlife.
The Town Council would like to say a huge thank you to Endeavour Woodcrafts, who provide an invaluable day service, providing training in the art of woodwork and crafts for adults with learning disabilities and mental health issues, and who have worked tirelessly to produce these boxes.
Anyone who would like a bird box is urged to contact the Town Hall as soon as possible on tel. 01740 652157 or by email to avoid disappointment, and to arrange delivery/collection. Bird boxes will be limited to 1 per household.
Town Mayor, Councillor Joe Makepeace said ‘Ferryhill Town Council is delighted to be able to once again offer local residents the opportunity to pick up a free bird box to help protect local wildlife, and I personally would like to thank Endeavour Woodcrafts for working so hard to produce the boxes.’
