Scores of children on their school holidays enjoyed an activity event at Topsham Museum.

Over the course of two sessions led by the RSPB, around 40 youngsters took part in a bug hunt in the museum’s garden. They drew pictures of the insects and recorded species. Youngsters also made a hotel for bees. They then walked to the RSPB’s Bowling Green Marsh nature reserve as part of the event.
