Record Breaking Open Day

The sun shone on New Ferry Butterfly Park on Sunday April 30th and the visitors arrived....and arrived and arrived! 1059 in all.

A new banner covering the side of the container was unveiled. It was designed by Calum and Carol Ramsay.

There were lots of things for visitors to do. Pond dipping, making flower pictures, pedalling a bike to make a smoothie or making their own plant pot to pop a seed in

The cake and plant stalls are always popular and busy.

Local crafts people also came with items to sell.

Wirral Tree Wardens brought their maypole and music to celebrate the upcoming May Day.

Thanks also to Port Sunlight River Park, Record and our 'Spider Man' for adding to the fun.

The volunteers on the barbecue never stopped cooking and the queues showed how popular their food was.

Don't forget New Ferry Butterfly Park is open on Sunday afternoons from 12 to 4 p.m.

If you would be interested in becoming a volunteer warden and spending two hours greeting visitors at the Park once a month do email us or speak to one of the wardens when you visit.
