Belper bird boxes

SCOUTS in Belper received 25 bird boxes from Severn Trent to put up in a wildlife area.

The 1st Alton Manor Bradelei Scouts erected the boxes on ground near Alton Manor football pitch, off Gregory’s Way in the town. They will now monitor the boxes over the spring and summer and record any activity, and in the autumn the boxes will be cleaned out ready for next spring.

The Scout Group, which has over 150 members, is working hard to raise funds for the next stage of building work on new headquarters on Gregory’s Way. To donate, contact Darren Barnes on 01773 880019.
