Come to the launch of Wild Maidenhead's new Wild About Gardens Awards (WAGA) 2019.
Help us to become a community that helps its wildlife to thrive. Bees, birds, insects and amphibians increasingly rely on our gardens for food and shelter.
If you’re lucky enough to have your own garden, you'll learn about the 24 different ways you can make your garden more wildlife-friendly and find out how to enter your garden for a Bronze, Silver or Gold award. We'll have entry forms and plenty of advice if you need it. Jan Stannard will tell us about the 2019 scheme and show us the variety of birds, butterflies and other insects that can be attracted into your garden with a little help from you.
The WAGA scheme covers the parishes of Bisham, Bray, Cookham, Cox Green, Holyport, Hurley, Knowl Hill, Pinkneys Green, Waltham St Lawrence and White Waltham, and gardens in Maidenhead town itself.
Paid-up members of Wild Maidenhead can come for free (£5 a year: www.wildmaidenhead.org.uk/join-now) or we encourage donations (£3 suggested) which help support our work. You are welcome to bring friends and neighbours.
