Houndwood Summer Fete

Houndstone Summer Fete Somerset Wildlife

 

The Avalon Marshes Landscape Partnership team were delighted to meet lots of budding wildlife enthusiasts at the annual Houndwood Summer Fete in July.  The team ran pond dipping, butterfly-friendly planting and wildlife picture colouring.  We have been kept busy over the past few months helping the residents to keep the wildlife pond clear, and the amount of species the children found at the event suggest we must be doing something right.  Many thanks to Knightstone Housing for inviting us along, Butterfly Conservation for the donation of plants,  and to all those people who dragged themselves away from the Morris Dancing, BBQ and coconut shy to come over to say ‘hello’.
