The De Beer garden outside the Juniors is looking fantastic and to encourage more birds to come and say hello, the Vinehall Venturers took on the challenge to make some eco-friendly bird feeders. Scooping out the insides of half an orange, lemon or lime took a lot of care to not tear the skin, but everyone managed to create a solid container. Adding the twine through little holes made in the sides took perseverance and patience but once filled with the bird feed mixture, all were eager to find a hanging spot on the trees, the bay tree being the favourite.  Thankfully, despite a windy weekend, they were all still safely hanging on Tuesday morning ready for the birds to feast on.
