SPIDER CLUB

Our children's Spider Club activities are all about getting youngsters involved with nature. Due to the popularity of the Spider Club and the need to keep the group size manageable, there are limited new places and sometimes a waiting list. Please contact the warden for more details.

The Spiders planted a lot of trees today which we had received from the Woodland Trust. They did a bird survey by putting out seed, apple and cheese and noting down what the birds liked. the cheese was not very popular. Finally they created a spider web on the wall where they can put their art work.
