The Prince’s Trust group at Kirriemuir secondary school have built a spectacular bug hotel in the grounds of the town’s dementia garden. The pupils used donated wood from James Jones & Sons' sawmill in Kirriemuir for the timber frame.

Pupils were recently joined by members of Kirrie Connections for an event to herald the successful project.

Pupils built the whole thing and laser cut intricate parts of the bug hotel and replicated the designs on keyrings which are on sale at the Murton Trust nature reserve near Forfar. The proceeds of which will go to chosen charities – The Aegis Trust, Animal Network and The Angus Food Bank.

Amanda Mailley of the ASN department at Webster’s High School said “It has been a real team effort. The Prince’s Trust group did this as part of their community project with Kirrie Connections. It’s been a great project for all involved.”
