They were presented with a signed certificate and small trophy to commemorate their efforts.
Over the last couple of years they have erected about 100 bird boxes, mostly for Tits but also some for Robins.
The following organisations have benefited :
Wigan and Leigh Hospice, Leigh Neighbours' Project, Leigh St. Mary's Primary School, Victoria Park in Ashton-in-Makerfield, Appley Bridge Floral Society and a national lottery funded group who work in the deprived areas of Leigh.
Most of the boxes were made by 'Men in Sheds', a local organisation made up mostly of retired men, and modified by Eddie with others made by Eddie himself.
