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
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
