Wild About Derrington - April 7th 2018

Thank you to everyone who attended Wild About Derrington, it was a great success. As you will see from the photos, hundreds of people attended and it was free!

It was good to see so many people volunteering their time to very worthwhile projects as seen in the stalls around the Green. A big thank you to all the volunteers and especially Karen Davies and Roy Wood who were instrumental in making it happen.

Please take some time to view the photos below.

Face Painting is always popular

See what was caught in traps (humane) before the event!

Even the local wildlife tried to attend! (on the way to the pond). Looks like there will be plenty of toad spawn again!

Careful handling is always required with bats (you need a license) especially one as small as the  Pipistrel

Same goes with Bumble bees!

Some times in life you've just got to make you're own fun and what better way than splashing in a puddle, until one of your wellies gets sucked off and you fall on your bum!

At least you can then go and warm yourself in the shed next to the wood burning stove, while Mum gets a bit of peace and a well deserved cup of coffee!  Great to see so many children having fun!
