LYRiC Trainees – Update June 2021

Our Love Your River Cole Trainees have been taking part in some exciting activities over the last few weeks. They’ve held some great events and activities which have been made even better by the warm weather we’re finally getting! Training is still going strong with the trainees working on our project sites and helping out with the practical work on the project.

Big Wild Breakfast

Oliver and Aneesha held a Big Wild Breakfast event on the 1st June, to celebrate the start of The Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild challenge.

Around 40 people came along to enjoy breakfast outdoors, as well as taking part in a mini BioBlitz and a wildflower hunt.

The B37 Project – Art Event

Kevin and Helen at The B37 Project have been helping run a brilliant wildlife art and education session at Meriden Park, working alongside B37 artist Rachel Symonds. Local children came to explore the morphology and life-cycles of insects, and the important roles they play in supporting other wildlife and in food production. Learning through art is such a creative, imaginative and accessible way to get involved in nature.

Lea Marston Community Garden

At the end of May our trainees worked alongside the Tame Force volunteer group to begin to transform the old Victory Hall site at Lea Marston into a community garden. The day of work involved planting native trees and hedges at the site, and installing wooden benches.
