STUCK for an unusual present this Easter?
Why not buy a bat box and help keep mosquitoes and other harmful insects under control this summer.
Users and staff at EARTH, the Ely based charity which runs at Larkfields, in High Barns, will be selling bat boxes and many more items besides at a spring sale, set to take place at the centre on Thursday, March 6, between 2.30-4pm.
Also on sale will be spring bulbs, bird boxes, bird feeders, and bug boxes to encourage helpful insects breed in the garden.
Inside the bat box will be a brief advice sheet on where to put it up in the garden.
