Balmoral Show 2015
Balmoral 2015 was a great event and we at AYW had lots of fun meeting, chatting and playing with over 400 people who came through our stand over the three days. 250 of you tried to count our ladybirds in our wildlife garden and over 100 of you knew that on Wednesday and Thursday there were 35 and on Friday there were 30! But Megan Roberts from Fermanagh was the successful counter pulled out of all the correct answers and so the cuddly Badger, Otter and Hedgehog are on their way to keep her company.
We were really keen to show everyone that no matter what sort of garden you had, a messy one or a Chris Beardshaw masterpiece, you could encourage wildlife to your garden by making some really simple plant choices and by making a few easy additions, like some logs, stones and a little water. Everyone we talked to over the three days was doing a little and some people were wanted to do much, much more. But hey, all we ask is that you do something.
