Event description

Description

Quorum Business Park has been carefully designed to attract and nurture wildlife. So we’re all about helping out our little wildlife friends.

Build your bug hotel (also known as a wildlife hotel or stack) well and it could shelter anything from hedgehogs to toads, solitary bees to bumblebees, and ladybirds to woodlice.

We’ll be hosting a ‘build a Bug Hotel’ event on Wednesday 20th March over lunchtime, 12.30-1.30.

We’re looking for volunteers on the day to help build it, but we’re also looking for people to provide resources for it, see below for details –
