More than 40 young dragon hunters turned out to track down a dragon recently sighted in Hurst Green.
Like all good hunters, they looked for signs and tracks which led them into the woods and to the dragon’s lair. They were delighted to find that the dragon was sitting on a nest with lots of sparkling dragon eggs.
They then led the dragon back to the playground, where they had a picnic in the sunshine and played on the slide with the dragon.
Although the event, organised by Clare Hyde as part of Church Goes Wild, was free, donations amounting to £50 were given to World Land Trust, which helps to protect endangered habitats and species, including the Komodo Dragon.
