Children from Radlett’s Girlguiding group took part in a sustainability project at Shenley Park, which involved planting new trees and hedges and setting up bird feeders.
Around 12 Guides, 15 Brownies and 20 Rainbows took part in the activity, which aimed to maintain and regenerate the park for environmental and recreational purposes.
The bird boxes were previously built by the girls and were put up by the Guides, whilst the Brownies and Rainbows took charge of planting hedging around the meadow area. Around 100 trees were planted, following on from their regeneration project last year.
The girls also made birdfeeders on the day which they took home with them, whilst around 35 were left at the park.
Girlguiding leader Nicola Day said: “They love supporting the park especially as so many girls go and play there with their families, and they can check up on the hedges which they planted. It creates an understanding of the environment for them – they become very protective of their maintained areas!”
