The Trust played host to a Gardening for Wildlife event at the Wolseley Visitor Centre, once the ancestral home of the Wolseley family, now their headquarters set in beautiful wildlife grounds. Well worth a visit. Also present was the Butterfly Conservation Society and the Bat Conservation Trust, along with other countryside themes. A great family day out.
