Next Wildlife Warriors Event Saturday February 23rd

The next of our hugely popular Wildlife Warriors events will be held this coming Saturday at 2:00pm.

This event has an historical theme and the children will be able to take part in a mini archaeological dig at the old ruins of Dob Hall, the remains of which stand next to the Mountsorrel Railway.

The building has been dated to around 1780 by archaeologists and the aim of the session will be to see if the children can find the original floor of the building plus pieces of pottery and other items of interest.

There will also be a bird box painting activity. Our volunteers have made over 50 bird boxes of different bird types to go up around the new Nunckley Trail and alongside the railway.

The event is aimed at children aged 3-11 accompanied by their parents/carers and is FREE of charge thanks to Sponsorship by the Mercury Newsagents on Leicester Road, Mountsorrel.
