Activities were adapted due to site changes however, the minibeast fen hunt was extremely successful and replaced pond dipping. Outcomes exploring minibeasts were met however it didn't give us the opportunity to compare freshwater minibeast with sea creatures when rockpooling at West Runton. Leaders were excellent and very well suited to working with children. (June 2019 - Primary - Post No: 13821 )




Employees and volunteers very knowledgeable and very very good with the children (December 2018 - Primary - Post No: 8286 )
