A new bird box trail has been launched at Memorial Park in Redhill.
Reigate and Banstead Borough Council are inviting children to spot the birds nesting in 22 colourfully decorated bird boxes installed around the park. The trail is both wheelchair and pushchair friendly and was installed earlier in spring by the Council’s Greenspaces team. The boxes were created by the Men in Sheds Group at Furnistore in Redhill, and decorated by local artists and Council staff. Trail leaflets can be collected from the Park’s Pavilion Café.
The new installations follow the success of the Earlswood Lakes bird box trail last year.

A nursing assistant at East Surrey Hospital is preparing to complete her 60th marathon this weekend, just weeks before her 60th birthday.
Kate Knight from Chipstead is raising money for SASH Charity after previously receiving treatment at the Hospital, which is part of Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.
This weekend she will take on the London to Brighton challenge, walking 100 km from Richmond Park to Brighton. Kate, who has worked at East Surrey Hospital since 2008, has travelled the world running marathons, from London and Dublin to Florida and New York despite undergoing numerous operations including a knee replacement.
Kate said that she had excellent care while in hospital for an operation on her lower spine, and since then does what she can to give something back.
SUSY Radio, along with our colleagues at other LOCAL radio stations up and down the country are joining in to celebrate Local Radio Day again this Friday.
Launched in 2016, the day highlights the value of local radio and celebrates the relationship between radio stations and their listeners. Last year over a hundred radio stations celebrated local radio by doing something extra special in their transmission areas.
As part of our involvement, Chrissy Muir will be presenting her programme from 10am – 12 noon and introducing special guest, Tim Glynne Jones, Organiser of local New Music Nights and New Music Festival. She will also feature some special surprises, and hear from some local people and what they have to say about local radio.
Following Chrissy’s programme, 12 noon – 2pm, join Neil Munday LIVE during our outside broadcast from County Mall shopping centre, Crawley.
Come and visit us between Costa Coffee and Greggs/McDonalds, and say “hello”!
