An event for children and their adult friends. Today we are inspired by the book - The Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson. Can you find any ladybirds in bushes, shrubs, flowers in our wildlife garden?

For our Magic Monday, Wild Wednesday and Fantastic Friday children's summer holiday events this year - we've teamed up with Stoke 100 reads. Each of the events are inspired by different books of the Stoke 100 reads. Can you read all of the books we've focused on for each event? We will have special cards which will be stamped each time you complete a book. Today we are inspired by the book - The Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson. Can you find any ladybirds in bushes, shrubs, flowers in our wildlife garden? Use our guide to help identify any ladybirds that you find. Learn facts about ladybirds and their life cycle. Test your knowledge with our ladybird quiz. Then make a home for ladybirds and their friends which you can take home. Meet at the Community Hub (refurbished building) in the southern part of the park near the canal and the large oval bowling green.
