A new wildlife garden made especially for young families in Poundbury officially opened for the first time today (Thursday 4th April).

The patch at the Sure Start Centre Children's Centre has a bug hotel and a butterfly area to explore.

It's part of a joint project between Dorset Wildlife Trust, Natural England and Dorset County Council and was designed by Thomas Hardye students.

Joy Wallis, project lead for the county's Wildlife Trust, told Wessex FM,  "It has been a fantastic project to be involved with. We have worked with many parts of the community and it will appeal to all ages."
 
Janice Young, the Deputy Manager from the Children's Centre added, "We are very excited to have this garden. It will be fun and educational and a great asset to the centre."

However, Louisa Payne, who is area manager of the West Dorset Children's Centre, also hopes the new garden would help raise more awareness of what the Centre can offer families of all different backgrounds. She says, "Any family at all is welcome to come along anytime. We have plenty on offer here and our services are open to anybody. You can always give us a ring on 01305 221348, any questions or queries we are always happy to help".
