A group of lucky schoolchildren have been learning more about local wildlife thanks to a generous gift from Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire. The national housebuilder paid for pupils at Badger Hill Primary School to enjoy a detailed talk and bird box building session this month, as well as awarding them a year’s membership to The Tees Valley Wildlife Trust. Pupils spent a happy morning putting up the finished boxes around the prestigious Hunley Manor development, in Brotton, and say they’re looking forward to watching birds flourish there.
People and wildlife manager at Tees Valley Wildlife Trust, Steve Ashton, explained: “The school children really enjoyed learning about their local wildlife and they always find creating bird boxes to be great fun. It is also a positive step to be able to work with a local business such as Taylor Wimpey to help continue the conservation of local wildlife.”
Jacky Prouse, sales executive at Hunley Manor, said: “This was a really fun project and something we’re extremely proud to have been a part of. The Hunley Manor development has a good community spirit and we are pleased to be able to help ensure local wildlife can prosper in the area.”
Situated close to the North Yorkshire moors and historic coastal towns of Whitby and Saltburn-by-the-Sea a short drive away, the development is well placed to enjoy some of the county’s most stunning countryside.
