We have heard that the Nettlecombe and the Mendip Wildlife Watch clubs have again been recognised for their excellent activities and hard work as they both received Highly Commended in the 2010 Wildlife Watch Group of the year awards. This is the second year running both groups have been praised for their work last year they were winner and runner up in the South West region. In 2010 the regional competition was removed so the two groups have been in competition with Watch groups across the country to receive this award.
We rely on fantastic volunteer leaders to run our Watch groups across Somerset which provide families with opportunities to take part in a diverse range of engaging wildlife activities. All of our Watch leaders are full of energy and enthusiasm and dedicated to their groups and without them Watch would not be the success it is. Well done to all the Nettlecombe and Mendip leaders for coming Highly Commended and to all Watch leaders for your fantastic hard work.
