Youngsters can go wild at Wildplay this October half-term

Friday 8th September 2017

Youngsters in Stoke-on-Trent are being given the chance to get outdoors this half-term and discover the delights of the natural world thanks to Staffordshire Wildlife Trust.

The county’s largest nature conservation charity is running two action-packed Wildplay sessions for eight to 14 year olds at its Westport Lake Visitor Centre.

The sessions are designed to encourage youngsters to discover the delights of the natural world and will include a variety of outdoor activities such as bug-hunting, natural arts and crafts, den-building and scavenger hunts.

Wildplay at Westport takes place on Monday 23rd October between 10am and 3pm and Thursday 26th October between 10am and 3pm.

Jo Olivant, Education Manager, said: “Wildplay is our way of introducing children to the outdoors and the natural environment by doing lots of exciting and fun things.

“Sessions allow youngsters to get stuck in and really enjoy the delights of the natural world. We’ll be encouraging them to get muddy, explore and take part activities which are extremely fun and engaging. It’s a great way to get them outdoors during half-term.

“The sessions are led by what the children taking part fancy doing – so if they want to go and build a den that’s what we’ll help them do. Activities vary each day too so all sessions are different.”
