Over this summer we have taken 49 children and young people to Stackhouse Cove to look at what was first recorded by John Stackhouse in the 1700’s. We want to raise awareness of the work and aims of the Marine Conservation Society so funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund we worked with Paul Semmens local marine biologist and Phil Needham dive master to show what life can be found at low tide in rockpools and in the beautiful shallow waters. Many of the children who took part were either young carers or their families are on a low income. The children each had underwater cameras to record their finds and the whole programme was filmed by Steven Mackay. The film will be shown along with lots more fun, games and learning acvtivities later in October. Thanks go out to all the families and volunteers who took part. Let us know via the contact page if you would like to join us!
