Receiving The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

Wirral Wildlife, local group of Cheshire Wildlife Trust, was presented with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Merseyside, Mr Mark Blundell, on November 10th at a ceremony at Heswall Hall.

The Award was created by The Queen in 2002 to mark the occasion of her Golden Jubilee, recognising excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community. The Queens Award for Voluntary Service is described as the MBE for volunteer groups.

Wirral Wildlife was established to protect and champion wildlife in the Wirral and this award represents the tremendous achievements of everyone in Wirral Wildlife over the last 46 years.

About 50 members attended the evening presentation, which was followed by a talk by Sarah Bird about the role of Chester Zoo in conserving UK species of animals and plants.

Of course, no celebration can take place without a cake!

Thank you to every volunteer who has worked as part of Wirral Wildlife.

We hope to continue to inspire, inform, educate and encourage people to protect nature in Wirral for many years to come.
