VISITORS to the Cotswold Water Park later this month can find out ore about bats at a special spooktacular event.

Between 10am and 12.30pm on Wednesday, October 28 visitors can take part in a range of activities at the Gateway Centre in Spine Road to find out more about the creatures living there.

There will be a talk for children given by bat expert Dave Endacott at 10.30am and 11.30am. Dave will be bringing along some of his rescue bats, so everyone will get the chance to see bats up very close.

During the event there will also be activities, quizzes, crafts and games for children to learn more about the 14 out of 17 species of bat in the area.

The event, which is suitable for children aged between five and 13, costs £5 per child with the talk and £3 without.
