Wet ‘n’ Wild
Wednesday, April 18th 2012
Pupils from Firthmoor Primary School braved the cold wet weather and visited the reserve today. After pond-dipping and bug hunting they enjoyed building dams with the series of purpose built metal gates in the beck (at least there was plenty of water to play with)!
The water was built up and then allowed to 'whoosh' away again.
Volunteers helped with summer maintenance jobs and Crakehall Ladies enjoyed a guided walk around the site.
