Email to order your copy of our new booklet!

During the periods of lock-down people have become much more conscious of wildlife and nature. The healing properties of nature have been expressed on television and in literature as well as experienced by many. As people have escaped the confines of their homes for exercise outside, they have been able to embrace and become curious about the world they find outside in their area. This booklet, “Wildlife in Ascot - Who shares your garden?” has 40 pages of information with local colour photographs and some original drawings. It is designed to start people off on a journey of discovery. We hope that it is useful to identify animals and also as a guide on how to help our local wildlife.
