Children will be able to find out more about creepy crawlies at a special summer event next week.

The ‘creepy, crawly, flying, swimming things’ event hosted by Preston Council is the third in a summer series.

It will take place at Fishwick Local Nature Reserve on Tuesday between 1pm and 3pm.

The focus of the minibeast adventure will be for youngsters to see what beasties they can discover in the ponds on the reserve.

The fourth and last event in the series will be held on Tuesday August 20.

It will also run from 1pm and 3pm and youngsters can make bug boxes.

The bug boxes can be used as homes for some of the wildlife discovered on the sessions.

The sessions are run by the Parks and Horticultural Services and booking is essential.
