The Wilkinson store in Ely is giving away a year’s supply of bird food as part of a competition to create a fun bird box design.

The competition is part of the retailer’s Wild Bird campaign, which encourages children and adults to look out for and protect wildlife in their own gardens throughout the winter months, and is open to people of all ages living in East Cambridgeshire.

The winner will walk away with a year’s worth of bird food, a bird table and special pack filled with plenty of gardening equipment.

Jo Walsh, store manager at Wilko Ely, said: “We’re looking for fun, different and creative bird box designs that will really stand out from the crowd.

“The winning entrant will be rewarded with a whole host of goodies from our wildlife and garden range, all of which will be perfect for helping both amateurs and enthusiasts spot plenty of wild birds, in their natural habitat.”

Entries must be submitted on A4 paper by Friday, February 20, and can be e-mailed to wildbird@tangerinepr.com or posted to Tangerine, Giant’s Basin, Potato Wharf, Castlefield, Manchester, M3 4NB.

Alternatively, they can also be dropped into the Ely store, in The Cloisters.
