Join us for a morning of recycling fun! Experience fun ways to upcycle or be creative with waste.

Sessions are suitable for families with children aged 3 - 11* and will include:

  • Recycling related craft
  • Upcycled play Activities and information
  • Outdoor play (for under-7s, similar to the MERL's Friday Fledglings)

All children must be accompanied by an adult and we encourage parents/carers to assist with all activities.

As some of the activities are outdoors, please ensure you dress for the weather.

Picnics are welcome! Drinks, sandwiches and snacks are also available from our cafe.

If possible, we ask families to bring a clean, plastic bottle and a kitchen roll tube to help with the activities.
