It's Friday and as people

Just one cornetto...

By Heather 11 years ago


It was a very sad day on Thursday as it was Jodie's last day after 12 years of working for Wiggly Wigglers. To mark the occasion, the team went out for a slap up meal at The River Cafe at Glasbury. Heather had laid on a little surprise - a taxi, with a difference, home. It came with a few extras ie a hamper complete with champagne, a cornetto and last, but not least, two rather hunky young men.

We all miss Jodie and wish her well in her new gardening venture. Taking over from Jodie, we are pleased to welcome Dave who has been appointed as Despatch Manager. More about Dave in a later blog post...

Are there elephants and hummingbirds in your garden?

Garden Moths Count runs from 21 June – 6 July 2008 with the aim of stimulating interest in moths which will ultimately assist in the long term conservation of the rich variety of species we have in this country.

Moths, like their flashier butterfly friends, are great pollinators and make a significant contribution to our ecosystems, but are often overlooked. They are also provide valuable food for many animals and birds, including bats.

To find out more about getting involved in the Garden Moths Count take a look at the Butterfly Conservation site.

If you think you are too late for this year’s count, how about making a note in your diary for next year, or perhaps joining a group in your area?
