My Wild Life heads for the Capital….

Froglife's My Wild Life project will be holding its first reminiscence session in London on Tuesday 25th October at Foots Cray Meadows in Bexley. Project Officer Jodie Coomber explains more...
One of the pic nic baskets to prompt wildlife memories
We'll be travelling down to London with pic-nic baskets full of books, model animals and other goodies to prompt happy memories of climbing trees and looking for tapoles.  This will be part of an event hosted by the Friends of Foots Cray Meadows. It’s a lovely way to kick-start My Wild Life in London as Froglife’s Living Water scheme is responsible for the fantastic new ponds on the Meadows and we’ve enjoyed working there in the past.

We hope that families who come along will share their stories of growing up and interacting with nature in different ways, and plan to film some interviews for our growing archive.  It will be interesting to find out how stories from London compare with the ones we’ve heard so far in Peterborough.

There will also be tree planting sessions, so this event offers an exciting half-term opportunity for families to come along and share their experiences whilst learning about the opportunities provided by Foots Cray Meadows as a wildlife habitat and public open space.

The event will be held in the Information Centre between 11.30am and 1.30pm so if you’re nearby please come along and join in the fun.
