Yesterday saw the last of our visit to Bedford Schools when we visited Beauchamps Middle School As per usual I did the talk (no one cried this time )and left Rangers Danny and Nicky to build the boxes.

Later that day Danny sent me a photo he head taken of the completed boxes along with a summary of what we had achieved this time round – which I have knicked wholesale

The Bedford Ranger Service and Bedfordshire Bat Group presented a school assembly and then built bat boxes with a group of children, selected by the schools.

This autumn’s bat box building took place in Harpur, Castle and Brickhill wards and was funded by councillor’s Louise King & Colleen Atkins.

The schools visited were:

  • Livingstone Lower
  • Priory Lower
  • Scott Lower
  • Beauchamp Middle

Overall we:

  • Presented to about 550 children in assemblies

  • Gave 96 children the chance to construct bat boxes

  • Built 35 bat boxes

  • Provided 25 bat boxes to the schools

  • Provided 10 bat boxes for the local green spaces

  • Provided teaching resources to all the schools

  • Provided educational resources to 96 children

    No more events now before the New ear, time to start thinking about Christmas
