The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to Herm Island and Jono Bailey who have recently helped us care for some of our trees on site at the GSPCA.  

Jono is a tree surgeon and from Herm Island we kindly were able to borrow fuel and a chain saw.

Jono lived in Herm for over 20 years and also worked on the stunning and pretty island so many love to visit.

When Herm island heard about the work needing to be done at the GSPCA they wanted to help out and kindly allowed Jono to borrow the chainsaw.

The 'Going Wild at the GSPCA' project was launched by St Andrew’s Floral group in July 2015 and much progress has been made to provide a green framework for the buildings to improve the environment for the animals in care and attract wildlife.

The willow fedge and bird hide dome have grown well and also the wildlife hedge and native tree planting along the roadside.
