Worn-out wellies wanted.

TEESSIDERS are being asked to give it some welly at a local nature reserve.

Saltholme wildlife reserve and discovery park is asking people to donate their unwanted, worn-out wellies.

They will be then be transformed into miniature gardens or bird feeders.

Visitors will also be able to decorate their wellies on site.

Liz Morgan, RSPB marketing officer, said: "Maybe Santa brought you a brand new shiny pair of wellies for Christmas, but you don't know what to do with your old ones - well, bring them to us and we'll show you how to put them to good use."

A host of activities are also planned at the site from welly quiz trails, welly walks and pushchair pushers, to maybe even a spot of welly wanging.
