To mark World Environment Day today (5 June), Spelthorne Borough Council is urging residents to appreciate their surroundings.

To highlight the beauty that appears within our Borough, we have released a video showcasing the best Spelthorne has to offer, while also highlighting the issue of fly-tipping.

While we are spending more time at home and adapting to a new normal, we have also become more aware of nature flourishing around us.

Whether it is waking up to a chorus of bird song, watching hedgehogs snuffling around the garden or spotting a lone butterfly pause to smell the roses, we are starting to appreciate our natural surroundings.

Caring for nature and encouraging wildlife to thrive is essential for maintaining a healthy environment. There are lots of ways we can help:

  • make your garden more wildlife-friendly by planting flowers that encourage bees
  • cater for the creatures that visit your garden by making a bird or butterfly feeder
  • protect animals and plants by reducing your plastic consumption, opt for reusable items and recycle as much as possible
  • avoid using the car to explore, try to walk or cycle instead
  • while out in the woods or countryside, stick to the paths to avoid disturbing delicate plants
  • if going out to have a picnic, take your litter with you leaving the 'picnic spot' as you found it
