Eco Warriors and Nature Detectives

Youngsters have been learning how to save the planet at two special holiday events at Hethersett Library. 

Two morning sessions have shown them how to care for the environment through a series of quizzes, games and activities. 

The first morning was for Nature Detectives – children up to the age of seven. A total of 34 youngsters with their parents and carers heard about re-cycling and enjoyed puzzles, word searches, mask making and learning how to find animal tracks. 

The second session catered for Eco Warriors – youngsters aged eight to 12 -and a further 25 children with their parents and carers took part. They used library resources to learn about subjects as diverse as re-cycling and composting. The events were all part of Norfolk Library Service’s Big Wild Read summer for children. 

The next special event at Hethersett Library will take a nostalgic look at the world of food and drink. Members of the public will be encouraged to reminisce on Saturday 8th September from 2.30 to 4 p.m about the tastes of the past. Books with a culinary theme will be on display in a trip through food and drink through the ages. There will also be free refreshments. 

The entrance to the library has been turned into a colourful display of winning posters from the recent competition organised by the Hethersett and Meltons Road Safety Committee which attracted entries from five local Hethersett and Little Melton schools.
