Wildlife Watch is the UK’s leading environmental action club for kids. It’s all about YOU – and the natural world around you. There are 60,000 Watch members and hundreds of local groups where young people get stuck into environmental activities. Taking part in Wildlife Watch is an exciting way to explore your surroundings and get closer to the wildlife you share it with.

Tower Hamlets has its very own Wildlife Watch Club called the Bow Beasties, and is currently recruiting new members. We meet on the third Saturday of every month at the Soanes Centre, Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, Southern Grove E3 from 10:30am – 12:30pm. It is open to all children from 8 – 14 years old and best of all it’s FREE!

Bow Beasties has two leaders called Tim and Ken, both have had a CRB check and are extremely enthusiastic about wildlife. They will be there all the time the children are at the club and will work with the children to help them with the various activities.

For more information, please contact Ken on 07904 186 981 or by e-mail or visit the website
