A new Peterborough popup shop could solve some of your Christmas gift dilemmas and give you the chance to come up with something wild and wonderful!
Until January 12 the Wildlife Trust BCN is taking over a retail unit in Westgate Arcade which will be stocked with wildlife-themed merchandise – everything from bird and bat boxes, hedgehog and insect homes, field guide books, 2019 calendars, Christmas cards, stocking fillers and fun wild accessories. The Trust’s Wild Pop Up Shop will be the first ever third/voluntary sector shop in the Queensgate centre, and will have a fun window feature Homes for Wildlife, with ‘For Sale’ boards for des res boxes and houses on sale for all of Peterborough’s wild residents: agreeable annexes for prickly friends, taking the first step on the rung of the bird property ladder - everything that Peterborough’s insect, bat, bird or hedgehog might desire and require. Among alternative ways to give one solution for a meaningful, thoughtful gift which will last throughout the year and benefit local wildlife and the environment is the gift of Wildlife Trust membership, this year available as a Membership Gift Box on sale in the shop – inside is a copy of the latest Local Wildlife magazine, a toy buddy badger, a torch and various other goodies – and the recipient will have a year’s membership of the Trust.
The shop will be run by Trust staff and volunteers.
