Today the team (Jo, Nikki, Vickie and Jaclyn) held activities at St Agnes Fete. 

Thanks to all the visitors and residents who came to join our activities. We offered ‘find the storm petrel map competition’, the ‘storm petrel bucket game’, the ‘colouring competition’ and more. Head to the audio section of the website to hear interviews with visitors.

Feedback from the activities included

‘My children learnt about the project in a fun way, without even realising the were learning how to  protect seabirds. What a god way to explain all about the project’

‘It’s nice to play a game, join a competition and then chill out just colouring in at this stand. You are doing a good job here.’
