St Albans and Harpenden care homes support wildlife week
STAFF and residents at Bupa care homes in St Albans and Harpenden are urging the community to help reverse the decline in the UK house sparrow population but creating bird-friendly gardens.
As part of National Wildlife Week, May 7 to May 13, Allington Court nursing home in Bricket Wood, Tenterden House in St Albans and Field House in Harpenden will host a week of activities around the 'save the sparrow' theme.
Bupa's community and partnership manager Siobhan Drane said: "Everyone enjoys seeing a cheeky sparrow in gardens, but this much loved British bird needs our help.
"So we're asking everyone to join the campaign, either by offering a helping hand to our green-fingered residents or by making their own gardens more bird-friendly."
