Spa children get wildlife awards
10:50am Monday 7th January 2013 in News
YOUNGSTERS from Droitwich Spa were amongst those to be given awards for successfully taking on wildlife activities and challenges.
The children received wildlife watch awards at a recent meeting of Worcestershire Wildlife Trust’s Club WoW.
Club WoW (Watch out Wednesdays) meets once a month and gives children a new way to explore wildlife and have fun. Debs Richardson Bull, education officer for the trust, said “We presented a total of five national watch awards just before Christmas – the culmination of lots of work by the children involved.
“The awards are designed to inspire young people to help wildlife, discover more about the natural world and learn how to do new things, all while having fun.
“Some of the activities and challenges have been done at trust events or the club’s monthly meetings and some have been done at home.”
Solomon Rose, six, from Worcester, was awarded his starlets certificate, badge and zipper pull. Martha Davey, six, from Grafton Flyford, Isabel Jones, seven, Alex Gurr, seven, and Matthew Gurr, nine, all from Droitwich, received their bronze hedgehog award.
Children and families can join wildlife watch from just £15 per year. Members receive a fun-packed folder of wild stuff plus four issues of the Watch magazine every year.
