Chafford Gorges Nature Park is hoping to break a world record after building an enormous bird box.

Education and community officer Andrew Siddle, with some help from south Chafford ward councillor Tunde Ojetola, constructed the house at the park before children and their parents decorated it with hand prints. They also wrote a promise to wildlife underneath.

The box measures 10 feet by five feet, which the team believe is the largest ever built. However they will have to wait to find out from Guinness World Records officials if the record has in fact been broken.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
