RSPB Saltholme is inviting visitors to meet critters that creep, crawl and slither as they round off a week of Halloween fun.

The nature reserve is looking forward to a packed weekend with activities to prove to everyone there is no need to worry about things that go bump in the night.

The Halloween Extravaganza is being held on Saturday and Sunday and will round off a busy half term week at the reserve near Billingham.

Saltholme’s marketing officer, Lydia Tague, said: “We’ve been having a fantastic week full of fun with our hibernation trail out on the reserve and showing visitors how to make a ‘house for a mouse’ in the visitor centre.

“But the highlight of the week will come this weekend when we’ll be welcoming back storyteller, Chris Connaughton.

“Scales and Tails will also be back with their fantastic workshops where you’ll have chance to come face to face with and learn more about the creatures that go bump in the night.”

The reserve is open from 10am until 4pm on both days.

Children’s activity passes are £6 or £4.50 for RSPB members. Reserve entrance is free for RSPB members or £4 per car for non-members.
