Dads and daughters bond over bird boxes

FATHER and daughter teams put their woodworking skills to the test when they were challenged to make bird boxes together for Father's Day.

The event was organised by the Fernvale Girl Guides with the assistance of the Somerset Community Men's Shed, who hosted the workshop.

Lowood father of three Rob Harm, said his daughter Brianna had been looking forward to event for weeks.

"Our bird box wasn't perfect - it wasn't quite square and there were a few gaps, but it has a lot of character, we had fun making it and it will make for a great piece of memorabilia," he said.

President of the Somerset Men's Shed, Rob Scully said everyone who took part "had a ball".

He said being involved in such events and giving back to the community was what his group was all about.

Wood used to make the bird boxes was donated by Mitre 10 in Lowood.
