THERE will be no shortage of homes for birds, bats and insects in the Frome area thanks to environmental community group – FROGS.

Around 300 people came to Welshmill Park to join in the group's make a home for wildlife day. The Welshmill Lane end of the park was full of adults and children making boxes, enjoying the playground, eating pizzas and learning about wildlife homes.

Families took great pride in the bat and bird boxes they assembled from kits, most taking them home.

Those boxes left with FROGS have been numbered and will be positioned in various parks and open spaces about Frome. The people who built them will be able to check on the FROGS website www.fromefrogs.org.uk where they have been placed.

All 65 bird boxes and a dozen bat boxes were completed, as well as around 15 insect hotels.

There will be two more free Forest School sessions at Welshmill Park, this Saturday and January 4.
