We’ve had a great year so far with some fantastic activities on offer in the school holidays at Thoresby Park and this half term was no different!

As part of our Thoresby’s Big Bug Out, we offered a self-led bug booklet for only £1, inside the booklet were lots of bug spotting and trail detecting activities along with information on creating your own Bug Hotels which were also on sale in the Visitor Centre.

With our new member of the team Rich starting just before the Big Bug Out was set to take place, Rich sprung into action and organised a few more exciting adventures to be had throughout the week including Tree Tickling, Minibeast Meadow Hunting and River Dipping where explorers found Leeches, Water Beetles and Tadpoles, but no Water Scorpion this time!

We’re looking forward to the next school holidays where I suspect Rich has a few tricks up his sleeves, ready to bring you some fun, mud and bugs!
