A Thank You for Volunteering

Tuesday 26th May 2015

Doreen Knight, Phil Bowen & Carole Taylor

In March 2015, Radnorshire Wildlife Trust volunteers Carole Taylor and Doreen Knight were presented with certificates by Phil Bowen, former High Sheriff of Powys, to thank them for volunteering for RWT over many years.

At the moment the ladies, with the support of other volunteers, are looking after three Powys County Council flowerbeds around the town of Llandrindod Wells, as well as RWT’s own garden. They chose the plants carefully with flowers that provide good sources of nectar for bees, beetles, butterflies and other insects. The volunteers are taking part in a ‘Welsh Wildlife Heroes’ project funded by the Co-operative.

Other Welsh Wildlife Heroes volunteers in Llandrindod Wells have been helping project officer Darylle Hardy to assess and map wildlife habitat around the town, looking for places where a change in management or mowing regime might be beneficial to wildlife. The town is blessed with lots of wooded paths, green open spaces, and a lake, some of which lies within the town’s Local Nature Reserve. Funding was also received from the Town Council to put nest boxes up in the woods for bats, tawny owls and other birds to use.
