Fiendish Fun at Frampton

There is a week of half-term holiday Halloween hi-jinks with the RSPB at their Frampton Marsh site, and they are dying to see you.

Starting on Saturday, October 21 and running every day through the holiday, you can follow a spooktacular treasure trail around the reserve.

If you are brave enough, you can pick up an entry sheet from the visitor centre before setting off around the surfaced trails. As you go you will find discover spooky stories about some familiar furry and feathered friends, before being asked questions. If you answer correctly you win a sweet treat. But watch out for the Shuck, Frampton's very own haunted hound.

The treasure trail is suitable for children aged 5 to 12 and costs £2.75.

You can encourage your budding David Attenborough on Wednesday, October 25, with a 'Birds for Kids' course.

This child-friendly event will teach your kids how to tell which bird is which, before putting theory into practice with a walk on the reserve.

There are two sessions, at 11am and 2pm, costing £3.50 per child, with advance booking essential.

On Sunday, October 29 there will be added fun at the reserve with face-painting. Your little monster can be turned into, well, a little monster.

Chris Andrews, Visitor Services Officer for the reserve, said; "The dark nights are drawing in and Halloween is upon us. Come and enjoy the thrills and chills of our spooky half-term events."
