Garden Wildlife Showcase comes to Sutton in April
Nature lovers can go wild in their gardens with the help of experts at an event next month.
The free Garden Wildlife Showcase will teach people how to attract their favourite animals - including frogs, newts, hedgehogs and more - to their gardens.
The event, which has been backed by Lottery funding and Sutton Council, will feature activities and displays from organisations including Biodiversity Gardens, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), and The Royal Horticultural Society.
There will also be a display of the winning entries from the Garden Wildlife Photography. Entries to the contest can still be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are 12 prizes, including a wildlife gardening kit.
Councillor Jill Whitehead, chairwoman of the council's environment and neighbourhood committee, said: "As a green borough, Sutton is home to a huge number of wonderful creatures, some of which we see daily, while others most of us don’t realise are there.
"We want people to enjoy spending time in their gardens and enjoy the wildlife that share the space we all live in."
The event happens at Wallington County Grammar School on Saturday, April 27, from 1pm to 4.30pm. To book a place visit: tinyurl.com/showcasebooking.
