IF you are fascinated by all things creepy and crawly, go along to RHS Garden Rosemoor in Great Torrington, this May Half Term (May 23 - 31) for an exciting 'Creepy Crawly' week, and celebrate the mini-beast! On average, there are 10,000 insects living in every square metre of habitable land on Earth . At Rosemoor, insects are encouraged into the garden, so if you look hard enough, you should manage to spot quite a few. Throughout Half Term week, there will be lots of interesting creepy-crawly themed activities to take part in, including a creepy crawly children's trail and a chance to see worms and ants hard at work in the entrance foyer. A 'Bangers and Brash' party is being held on Wednesday, May 27 at 12 noon. The new family picnic and play area, The Brash, will be officially opened with food served from 12.00 (First come first served) The Brash is a natural hideaway in the woods for children (and adults!) of all ages to enjoy. There will be log stepping stones, giant bugs to spot, dens, bird feeding stations and much more. The North Devon Beekeepers Association will be at Rosemoor on Tuesday, May 26 and Thursday, May 28 to show off their bees and hives. They will be doing family walks around Rosemoor at 11.30 and 2.30 on each day. 'Local bug fanatic, Joe from 'Repto Bug' will also be bringing some of his collection of all things creepy and crawly on Thursday 28 May. Hissing cockroaches, giant stick insects and friendly tarantulas will be amongst his mini-beast friends! So, with the warmer weather upon us and England beginning to bloom, May Half Term is the perfect time to get out and about. Rosemoor is bursting into glorious colour, and promises a great day out for all the family. What better time to visit!
