A wildlife-themed litter pick walk will take place in Ipswich this month as part of a national drive to clean up Britain in time for the Queen’s 90th birthday.
Sanctuary Housing has teamed up with Ipswich Borough Council and Greenways to fund an activity day encouraging people to take pride in their neighbourhood.
People in Ipswich will be able to get hands-on with Ipswich Wildlife Group using recycled wood to make wildlife homes for birds, insects and hedgehogs, with Suffolk Wildlife Trust also available for bug hunts and wildlife crafts.
The event is the culmination of a six-month project aiming to improve recycling and waste reduction across Ipswich, and also sits in line with the Clean for The Queen initiative.
James Baker, Greenways project manager, said: “The event will allow local residents to explore the wildlife on their doorstep and to understand the value of open spaces and gardens to wildlife.
“The Downside Close area is surrounded by varied wildlife habitats – key corridors in the Ipswich Wildlife Network.”
All residents are invited to come along to the event on March 31 from 10am-3pm, on the open area opposite Sanctuary’s office in Downside Close, Ipswich.
