The first day of Mossley Mill Eco-club was a great success despite the weather.
Participants braved the cold and rain to build bug houses in the Mossley Mill woodland and warmed up inside creating their own mini-beast creations to take home. This was the first in a long-running programme which will lead participants on a journey through the seasons and encourage children to appropriate their local environment.
The programme of activities includes ‘Signs of spring’ (April 20), ‘Tremendous Trees’ (May 18), ‘Pond-amonium!’ (June 15). The Eco-club is fully subscribed however if you know children who would be interested in attending contact Lindsay Matthews on 9034 0069 as a reserve list is in place in the event of spaces becoming available.
If enough interest is generated, a second club may be possible. The cost is £2 per week and the club is open to children between eight and 12 years old.
