September was a very busy month with lots of new children starting Nursery and getting to know us.

We said Goodbye to last years’ Wise Owls with a party at Nursery and a visit from Curious Critters.

The new Wise Owls have begun their swimming lessons at Horwich Leisure Centre. So far, these have gone very well.

We had a very exciting session out in the Forest with children and parents, just as it was going dark one evening, being bat detectives. This was taken by Russell Hedley of Nature Walks and Talks. The bats weren't keen on the rain but we did detect some presence with our special bat detectors and we learnt lots about bats and other animals who are awake at night. We found lots of creatures such as beetles, slugs and a beautiful little frog. Such an exciting evening for both children and adults!
