We're a few weeks into the school holidays and many of you may be starting to run out of ideas to keep the children amused. Rather than sticking the kids in front of the television this summer (yes, I know how tempting it is!), why not get out and about and give them the opportunity to learn more about nature?
Come along to East Town Park on Friday 10th August 2012 from 8:30pm until late, join the rangers looking for moths and bats and see if you can discover the Creatures of the Night! The event costs £2.50, children can take part for free, and booking is essential.
On Thursday 16th August, from 2pm until 4pm, children aged between 7 and 14 are invited to Learn to Fish at Newt Pond, Castle Playing Fields, Haverhill. A fantastic chance to learn or practice your fishing skills, the event is completely free but booking is essential.
Ok, so a large grey talking wolf may not strictly fall under ‘nature’ (or reality!) but classic children’s story, Peter and the Wolf is sure to delight children and adults alike.
Haverhill Arts Centre is putting on a fun and energetic interpretation at 8pm on Friday 24th August, which is told with puppets, plenty of imagination and of course, the iconic Sergei Prokofiev musical score.
Tickets cost £5 or £4.50 for concessions.
