Past Events

Saturday 4th February 2023 at Braywick Nature Centre
The wildlife visiting your garden this Spring will be on the lookout for shelter from the cold and a place to breed - and you can help. Pandemic restrictions permitting, our next major event will be our popular HOMES FOR WILDLIFE event in conjunction with Wild Maidenhead. Find out all about our range of boxes for garden birds, owls, swifts, bats hedgehogs and bees and place an order if you wish. You will be able to take part in the family NEST-BOX-BUILDING, very popular with children and a great way to get them involved in wildlife conservation. ​Kits of parts cost just £5 and you can take home the finished tit or robin box for your garden. There will be a suggested £3 donation from all those coming to support the work of Wild Maidenhead. ​Braywick Nature Centre, Hibbert Rd, Maidenhead SL6 1UU

A landmark event from 2018

In January 2018 the founder of the group, Mike Tucker (since retired), was awarded the Prime Minister’s Point of Light Award. Points of Light are outstanding individual volunteers – people who are making a change in their community. Every weekday the Prime Minister recognises an inspirational volunteer with the Daily Point of Light award. The award certificate was presented by the Prime Minister in person at Mike’s home, which was the venue for the box-building activities. On receiving the award, Mike said “My immediate response to the good, and surprising news, was one of great pleasure, and appreciation, for the voluntary team of ‘box boys’ who have made ‘Bisham Barn Owl Nestbox Group’ what it is over the past four years. Without them and the ‘field staff’, making installations, it would never have happened. I am so pleased for the recognition of the team, as they start another year.”
