Summer fun at Idle Valley

There is fun to be had at Idle Valley Nature Reserve near Retford this weekend.

The nature reserve on North Road is holding its free annual summer fayre on Saturday 18th June.

This year there is a strong focus on inspirational and creative art works that everyone can involved with.

Families can also find out more about how climate change is affecting our communities as well as our local wildlife.

It promises to be a fascinating day out with demonstrations from a local spinner, bee keeper and bird ringer. There will also be workshops with local artist Ross Spencer, who will create sculptures from litter found in Retford.

Lound Bird Club will be on hand to give tips about bird watching in the newly equipped viewing area while the Retford Local Group will be holding a plant sale. There will be shadow puppets, theatre work, trails, walks and refreshments.

The day will be rounded off by a generous BBQ and quiz. Tickets for the BBQ and quiz are £12 for adults and £5 for children and can be booked by calling the Idle Valley Team on 01777 713945 or calling in at Idle Valley reception.
