Creepy crawlies and wild creatures have been given a home at Chertsey Museum. Biffa Award funding provided the bugs of this Surrey village with a new habitat and a community of their own in the back garden of the museum.

Favourite plants for butterflies, ladybirds, bees and hedgehogs have been planted, encouraging new creatures to venture into the garden. Educational resources allow families and school groups to explore the area and identify the creatures they encounter.

13 year-old Phoebe Davies loves spending time at the garden.  She says: "I think the garden is so much better because there is loads of wildlife and it’s really lively, sunny and nice, because before it was really boring and dull."
