A fine time was had by all!

Wednesday, August 30th 2023

Another special Family Discovery Day has drawn to a close at Foxglove Covert - and it's been a fantastic day all round. We've been joined by local folk and families from much further afield too. Ever popular activities included pond dipping and mini-beast hunting, but dry stone walling and pipe-cleaner sheep proved to be a big hit too!

Whether you've come to us today to make clothes peg dragonfiles or to enjoy the wonderful variety of moths, we hope you've had a great day and that you'll come back to see us soon.

Thanks to all of the volunteers who made the day possible - including those who helped to make the Field Centre look spick-and-span through their efforts on Tuesday.
