They cost £2 per child and booking is essential on 01754 898057.

Later on Thursday, the centre’s ‘Kids Gang’ sessions continue with ‘ Funky Flowers’ from 2pm to 4pm.

The event is £3 per child. To take part book on 01754 898057.

Meanwhile, the reserve’s Easter trail continues today, Thursday and Friday.

“Pop into our Visitor Centre anytime over Easter and pick up one of our self-guided trails, “added the spokesperson. “Follow the trail and get the secret code to collect your Easter Egg.”

Participation is £1 per child.

Grown-ups also have events to look forward to - with a Spring Food and Craft Fair set to take place over the weekend on Saturday and Sunday, April 20 and 21. The fair will run from 10am to 4pm each day. Entry is free.
