The event begins at 12 noon and runs until 5pm at the Dog Field behind Somersham Lake. It’s free entry for all. A BBQ will be available from 12 noon, and cold drinks and refreshments will also be available. There will also be a raffle.

Events for little-ones

Wildplay – wild-life discovery sessions will be available at the Nature Reserve for young children. These are being arranged by the Children’s Centre – please book places with Rachel and Louise on 01487 840225.
