Move over Spring and Autumn watch... This summer was all about Hodder Watch.
The Friends of Bowland challenged the children of the Hodder valley to produce nature tables to be judged at the Hodder Valley Show.
The winning entry was the combined efforts of Slaidburn Brownies and Rainbows. Thorneyholme School came second with Slaidburn School in third place. Members of the Friends of Bowland made a surprise visit to the Brownies and Rainbows to present them with their prize which included wildlife badges donated by the Forest of Bowland AONB team. The visitors presented their own wildlife show and there was a lively discussion about the children’s favourite animals and the wildlife they had seen.
