Cathedral goes to seed

Have your say

FEATHERED friends will be in for a treat at Durham Cathedral.

A farmer’s wife has donated sacks of bird feed to the historical landmark after reading about its wildlife project.

The cathedral’s Woodlands and Riverbanks team is working with the city’s St Margaret’s Centre to attract more wildlife to the World Heritage Site.

Durham Cathedral teamed up with the mental health charity to build bird feeders for its grounds. Valdine Hogg, from Laverock Hall Farm, in Northumberland, said: “I saw the article about the cathedral working with a charity to make bird feeders for the woodland around the building and I just thought it was a lovely thing to get involved with.

“We have been looking for something that we could help with and we felt the cathedral’s project was something where we could really make a difference.”

Pam Stewart, from Durham Cathedral’s Woodlands and Riverbanks Team, said: “We are so grateful to Laverock Hall Farm for donating the feed.”
