Sholings Valley prepares to celebrate its silver anniversary
3:34pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
AN AWARD-winning and trail-blazing city conservation group is preparing to toast its silver anniversary on Saturday.
The event, from 11am to 4pm, will include ferret racing, wildlife walks and talks, a bouncy castle, games, birds of prey demonstrations and information stalls.
The group, based in Station Road, was also recognised last year with the prestigious Queens Award for Volunteering for its success in mustering local people into maintaining the wildlife haven, which is tucked away in a busy city residential area.
The site inspired TV wildlife presenter Chris Packham as a child.
He is now the patron of the charity.
