Lower Preps enjoyed a wonderful trip to Nower Wood, run by Surrey Wildlife Trust, on a ‘Badger’s Day Out’.  

With many activities including a blindfold trail to imagine being a nocturnal animal, a mini-beast hunt, pond dipping and looking at all the pond life in fantastic detail under the video microscope, the trip was voted a great success.
