RSPB East Berks Hits Town


We had a stand in Maidenhead High Street on Saturday

Wild Maidenhead held their public launch event on Maidenhead High Street and invited other local wildlife organisations to join in.

Our stand was the creation of committee members Kate and Ayla (left), with a little help from others.

The theme of the whole event was to involve children with nature. On our stand, children could colour-in cut-out bird silhouettes, add tissue wings, them take them away as mobile decorations. This proved very popular. We also had our programme, leaflets, pin badges and free balloons.

Various members worked shifts through the day, from 8am start to 4pm clear-up. We really enjoyed meeting so many new people, and hope to see some of them again, on one of our future walks or talks.
