Children get wild ideas following film screening
CHILDREN will get ideas on how to “get wild” this weekend following a special screening of a new film.
Project Wild Thing, a feature-length documentary recounting father David Bond’s mission to sell nature to British families, will be shown at Richmond Station Cinema at 1pm on Sunday, October 27.
Following the screening from about 2.30pm, volunteers from local nature reserves and outdoor visitor attractions will be on the Station platform highlighting opportunities for children to explore their natural environment.
Animals and birds from Bolton Castle, in Wensleydale, and Hazel Brow Farm, in Swaledale, will attend.
Volunteers from Foxglove Covert and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust will also be present to talk to the public.
Cath Calvert, from Hazel Brow Farm, said: “We’re trying to raise the profile of the project and highlight some of the opportunities in the local area for children to get wild.
"It's a really worthwhile scheme and should be a good afternoon."
Child psychiatrist Dr Adrian Sutton will attend the event to answer questions on the project.
