There are different feeders you can make and the event is fun for all ages.

Newsome Wild Open Day, 23rd October 2021

Newsome Wild is a new voluntary group forming to adopt a piece of unused land in the village. The hope is this land can be used to create a garden and outdoor space for the community as well as increase the biodiversity to support native and rehabilitated wildlife.
🌼🌷🏵️🐜🐝🕷️🐛🦋🦟🦗🐌

This is an open day to meet and chat about the proposed ideas for the unused land and turning it into a community outdoor space.

Saturday 23rd October from 10am to 4pm at Newsome Scout Hall.
