NEWHAVEN – bird box winner

National Nest Box Week was marked in style at a Newhaven garden centre which ran a colouring competition for younger visitors.

Six year-old Livvy Clancy from Newhaven won first prize in the contest arranged at Paradise Park. Her  winning design is now in the workshop, to be made into a real nest box and installed in the gardens at the Avis Road tourist attraction.

“We had enormous interest in the competition”, said Rebecca Houghton-Knapp from Paradise Park. “Entries were to a high standard and the judges had a difficult time selecting a winner. Thank you to everyone who took part and learned a little more about our native birds and their nesting habits.”

Livvy and her mum, Rebecca Clancy, are pictured collecting the prize from Kate Aust.
