Nature lovers enjoy scavenging


A SCAVENGER Hunt followed by a workshop to create bug hotels and bird boxes was held in Stackstead­s Riverside Park.

Stackstead­s Countrysid­e Park Group (SCPG) got a grant from the Rossendale council

Community Partnershi­p to organise the event.

Almost 40 children came with their parents and carers to explore the park and, on completion of the course, had hot chocolate and marshmallo­ws.

SCPG member Kate

Ashley, one of the organisers, said: “It was lovely to see so many children enjoying an event in the outdoors.

“They’ve been restricted for so long that they grabbed the opportunit­y to spend time with nature.”
