Children from in and around the Fenside area of Boston are invited to pop along to the Fenside Community Centre on Friday between 10am and 3pm to make their very own bug house.

This is a place where small insects can take shelter on rainy days, lay eggs or hibernate for the winter.

The activity is suitable for children aged five to 10, parents are welcome and refreshments will be available.

Everything needed to make the bug houses will be provided and there is no charge to take part. The activity is being run by volunteers from the community centre’s Grow Project who have created a community garden. The children can take their bug house home to put in their own garden or leave it at the centre.

Co-ordinator for the Grow Project Caroline Wallis said: “This is a great opportunity for children in the Fenside area to visit the community centre, see the community garden and find out how insects are really interesting and important creatures.”
