HONITON: Bird feeding station unveiled in library garden
Friday, 07 February 2014
A feeding station is one of the features in a bird garden created at the back of Honiton Library.
The garden has been created by members of Transition Town Honiton (TTH), and it was formally opened on Friday, January 31st by Steven Henry of the RSPB.
TTH member Russ Connors said: “We wanted to brighten up the library's back garden and help nature.”
Mr Henry added: “This project is exactly the kind of thing we’d love to see happen across the country.
“TTH had the vision to do this and worked hard to see it through. It is really inspiring to see what can be done when people work together.
“Of course, it really brightens up the area but it is also part of something much bigger.
“Gardens like this and gardens that people have at home, when put together, create the biggest nature reserve in the country, so even a little help will go a long way to giving nature a home.
“We hope the garden is enjoyed by all the visitors to Honiton Library and that is inspires others to give nature a home where they live.”
