Learn H.O.W. To at Hall Om Wong

04/09/2017 Bats, hedgehogs and more will be out at Hall Om Wong (Door 1) on 14th September when local people are invited to join their nocturnal friends for a special free “HOW TO” family event at Hall Om Wong, Eastwood Road, Kimberley.

Mayor of the Broxtowe, Councillor Halimah Khaled MBE, will open the event at 6.15pm, alongside experts who will be on hand to shed some light on the habits of these nocturnal creatures.

As well as learning “how to” make a bird box and spotting any bats that might be around, visitors to the event will also be able to watch professional sculptor Peter Leadbeater as he works on a tree sculpture which he will carve into an Oak trunk at the entrance to the park.

Children will be able to make a pine cone hedgehog to take home as well as see “Sparkle” the friendly rescued hedgehog. Clay creatures, bird feeders and a woodland trail will also feature.

The carving work has been funded by Broxtowe Borough Council’s construction partner United Living.

“It is great to raise the awareness locally in Kimberley for the wild nocturnal animals that play an important part keeping our environment in balance. The world we live in today is hard enough for us all but even more so for city living wild creatures whose habitats are constantly under threat.” Richard Baker United living Director. 

The event has been organised by Broxtowe Borough Council in partnership with the Greenwood Community Forest Team and follows visits to the site by Giltbrook Primary School earlier in the year to plant bulbs, hang bird feeders and help site bird boxes made at school.
