Celebrating birthday

BIRTHDAY cake will be on offer during an event to celebrate the birth of an influential naturalist.

Ward Jackson Park, in Hartlepool, will be the setting for an event called Darwin Discoveries, which celebrates the 203rd anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth.

The event, from 10am-noon on Sunday, February 12, will include a stroll from the park to Burn Valley Gardens.

Along the way, participants will be able to look at examples of natural selection and how it works.

Then the group will return to Ward Jackson park for birthday cake.

Booking is essential and more information can be obtained by calling (01429) 523419.
