EYE-catching displays that provide a window on nature and the impact of climate change on the world's environment are on view in Trowbridge.

They have been specially created by 25 artists, sculptors, photographers and local school children for the Trowbridge Windows on Nature Art Trail which opened on Saturday (June 5).

The trail was launched on Saturday to help celebrate World Environment Day by highlighting man's influence on climate change and its impact on nature, wildlife and biodiversity.

Event producer Megan Witty, who also organised the Pigs, Lions and Owls of Bath sculpture trails, said: “Everyone is really loving it.

"People quite like the fact that it is spread over 11 weeks to September 1 so they can do a little bit now and then rather than all at once."

"The aim of the trail is to provide a fun activity for visitors and residents of all ages, bring stunning wildlife art to the streets of Trowbridge, fill empty shops, raise awareness of the plight of nature and highlight how we can reduce our environmental impact on the planet.

"There is a stunning range of artwork on display and free trail maps will lead art and nature fans on a wildlife safari around Trowbridge town centre.

"We hope the trail will raise awareness of the rapid decline of some of our most beloved wildlife species."

The trail has been organised by Trowbridge Chamber of Commerce and is supported by Trowbridge Town Council. It has been sponsored by chartered accountants MHA Monahans in Trowbridge.
