St Agnes Fete 2015 

Thanks to all the residents and visitors who came to play the 'Manx shearwater game' - well the children, adults cant really fit through the 'burrow' to feed the toy chick! And thanks to those who made a badge or anenome! 

Our wonderful project Officers and volunteers were on hand to tell everyone about the project, what has been happening this summer, also how anyone can help protect our seabirds! Thanks also to Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust who assisted the event and joined us to explain their wider vital work on the islands and ran a quiz and Q&A session.
