Kids take a look at all crea­tures

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER - RHI­AN­NON MCDOWALL

MAC­CLES­FIELD RSPB Wildlife Ex­plor­ers started their new sea­son with a meet­ing cel­e­brat­ing bio­di­ver­sity – ‘All Crea­tures Great and Small’.

This was the first meet­ing at their new venue, the Sal­va­tion Army Hall on Roe Street in Mac­cles­field.

Ex­plor­ers had lots of fun learn­ing about the va­ri­ety of crea­tures in dif­fer­ent habi­tats. Mem­bers also com­pleted a fan­tas­tic mo­saic swan with feath­ers made by draw­ing round the chil­dren’s hands and car­ry­ing pledges and mes­sages in support of na­ture con­ser­va­tion.

Tina Hanak, group leader, said: “We had a great first meet­ing at the Sal­va­tion Army Hall – it was re­ally good to see so many fa­mil­iar faces, and some new ones, hav­ing so much fun learn­ing about wildlife.”

Mac­cles­field Wildlife Ex­plor­ers’ next in­door meet­ing, Colour and Cam­ou­flage, will be held on Mon­day Oc­to­ber 20, for young peo­ple. ●● FOR in­for­ma­tion go tomac­cles­fiel­dr­spb.org. uk.
