Building Bug Hotels at Handforth Dean

Our Cleaning Supervisor, Dan along with some very special helpers from a local primary school got together last weekend to build a bug hotel for Handforth Dean Retail Park. Bug hotels create a safe hideaway for wildlife and a well-built bug hotel can shelter anything from hedgehogs to toads, solitary bees to ladybirds and woodlice.

Dan commented, “At Handforth Dean Retail Park we want to create a sustainable environment for wildlife. By using recycled materials and donations, we have created two bug hotels, bird houses and insect hotels with are now dotted around the park to attract more wildlife. We’ve also planted a variety of colourful plants in the area too!”.

What a wonderful project. Special thanks to all the children involved in building the bug hotel!
