The Create for Nature project creates bespoke furniture and accessories for homes and gardens from waste wood, pallets and offcuts. These products are then sold to fund the Trust’s conservation work across the region.

“The project has attracted interest from retired men and women with a whole host of creative skills. What they all had in common however was a willingness to come and have a go and share their knowledge, as well as their wit and experience. The icing on the cake is that we’ve managed to re-claim a range of pallets and scaffolding planks which would have ended up going to into landfill, and the group upcycles them into fantastic high quality furniture and wildlife homes.”

The group meet at Cheshire Wildlife Trust’s Bickley Hall Farm headquarters near Malpas every Monday.

David Burton from Tattenhall is a member of the group, “I love the social part of it, but also the satisfaction of creating something from scratch. There’s nothing better than that. It’s made me look forward to Monday mornings all over again. My daughter rings me every Monday night to hear about what new projects we’ve been working on.”

Due to restrictions imposed on group working due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this project is currently on hold, please check back for updates
