THE Old Down and Beggarwood Wildlife Group will be holding a free Bugs and Butterflies event on August 23.

The event, which will be held at Old Down Hall, in Kempshott Lane between 2pm and 4pm, will see visitors of all ages given an opportunity to study photographic displays of Old Down and find out more information on the work the group do to promote biodiversity.

Volunteers will be on hand to help participants catch and identify a range of different wildlife while children can take part in a butterfly trail.

Teas, coffee and cake will be available to purchase on the day for a small cost.
