Kids meet creepy crawlies
10:00am Saturday 2nd November 2013 in News
CREEPY crawlies, small mammals, lizards and snakes were among the guests at a spooky animal event at The Chantry Centre on Tuesday.
The Chantry Centre’s Eco Kids Club hosted the free children’s event in Chantry Court Garden which allowed youngsters to meet and handle a variety of spooky animals, just in time for Halloween.
Among the featured animals were Dennis the Raccoon and Penny the Porcupine, plus tarantulas, a huge tank of giant cockroaches, Dumbo rats, lizards, snakes and a bullfrog.
Steve Cotney, centre manager at The Chantry Centre said: “There has been a great response to our Eco Kids workshops throughout this year.
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming Animal Magic and Eco Kids members, old and new, to our next event.”
Children can join Eco Kids for free by signing up to become members on line at thechantry centre.com/Eco_Kids.
Once a child has attended three or more workshops, they will receive a free Eco Kids branded T-shirt.
