On Sunday 3rd February, from 10.30 am to 3.00 pm we had a steady stream of visitors joining us in our fabulous Fossil Fest, another heritage lottery funded event as part of our Sharing Heritage grant.  Individuals and families were invited to come and discover the mysterious world of fossils, explore the NAT's collection of local finds and receive expert evaluation on their own collections. Children were invited to dig their own fossil to keep and take home and to use our 8 microscopes to view a selection of fossils, crystals and other specimens. Naming our rather friendy dinosaur gave the chance to win a fabulous fossil hunting kit as well as enjoying being able to have faces painted.
