Redditch wildlife heroes meet up to collect prestigious awards

Ross Crawford 10th Feb, 2020

FIVE people from Redditch have been recognised in the third Worcestershire Wildlife Trust Wildlife Hero Awards.

In all 31 people came together at the Trust’s headquarters to collect their awards last Thursday, January 31.

From community gardeners to social media influencers, each had received a nomination for doing great things for wildlife in their local areas.

Picking up awards were Charlotte Hall, Amber D’aniello and Emma Hawkes from the Forest School at Astwood Bank Primary School, and local residents Gary and Nicki Farmer.

Charlotte, Amber and Emma were singled out for the very successful and innovative Forest School programme they help run, both during school and as an after-hours club.

Their citation said they had inspired hundreds of children, giving them experiences of the natural environment they were unlikely to have had without their enthusiastic input.

Gary and Nicki were singled out for their garden which id a haven for wildlife.

Event organiser Sadie Carr Simons said: “It was an absolute delight to meet so many people who are doing important things for wildlife where they live.

“Our Heroes are an inspiration to us all – they go out of their way to help wildlife right across the county but, most importantly of all, they’re doing their bit in their own communities, helping to spread ideas for everyone to get involved in caring for our planet.”
