Building work at Wildside
In the first two weeks of June, we have building work going on to provide improved insulation for the office and meeting room. We will not have the office functioning as normal. While this will be a real enhancement to the building, we would ask you to bear with us if you find our response to your queries a little slower than normal.
Holiday Programmes and additional boat trips coming up
Some people were disappointed over the May half-term, especially as the boat trips were heavily booked. We shall get the summer holiday programme out very shortly on the website and the good news is that we shall also be putting on some additional boat trips outside the holiday period. So watch this space.
New arts project
Creative Black Country has funded us for an arts project called Seeing Small- microscopes and art.With artist Sue Brisco, we are creating an amazing collective art work for exhibition at Wolverhampton Museum and Art Gallery and other galleries.

There is one remaining session open for adults and older young people on Sunday 16 July, 10.30 -12.30. If you want to be part of this exciting project, please ring us to book your place as we can only take a limited number. Cost £3 per person.
