Boro Becks Team

The Boro Becks team are holding an autumn family roadshow to celebrate the changing of the seasons.

The free event involves face painting, children’s crafts and live animal handling displays with creatures including snakes and tarantulas!

Sammy Brown, Boro Becks project coordinator, said: “This is an ideal way to celebrate autumn and learn all about which animals will be hibernating along the becks and beck valleys.

“We will also be making insect houses and recycled bird feeders to give our feathered friends and creepy crawlies some extra help through winter.”

The roadshow will be held on Tuesday, October 25 from noon to 3pm at the Sutton Estate residents centre, Collin Avenue/Sutton Way and Thursday, October 27 from noon to 3pm at Thorntree Park pavilion, Thorntree Park.
