New garden area being brought to life by volunteers from Transition Town Honiton.

A beautiful haven for birds is being brought to life by volunteers who are creating a new garden at Honiton Library.

The volunteers from Transition Town Honiton’s (TTH) planting group have been busy clearing the area at the back of the reference library of weeds, and will be turning it into a beautiful bird haven with feeders and bird friendly plants.

High Street shop Violet and Grey recently donated a brand new bird house for the garden.

Honiton Library’s supervisor Linda Isaacson said: “The library staff are pleased that Transition Town Honiton would like to help make the view from the reference library more attractive.

“We appreciate the support of everyone who donates anything from a packet of birdseed to this lovely bird house.

“Hopefully soon, everyone will come and have a look at the work that’s gone into it and hopefully join the group to improve other areas of Honiton. It shows true community spirit!”

Sharon Pavey of TTH added: “Thank you to Claire Johnson at Violet & Grey. The bird house will make a really attractive addition to the bird garden at the library.

“This is just one of several projects TTH are running across town. We could do much more but we do need more people joining us to help, and this could be just one hour a month. It’s also a great way to get out and meet people.”

Anyone interested in getting involved is urged to call TTH on 07447 597390.

Donation of bird food can be taken to the library.
