Fans of CBBC’s ‘Live and Deadly’ are being invited to come along to Garscadden Woods later this month – and help out in a Deadly Scene Investigation (DSI).
Forestry Commission Scotland and Drumchapel L.I.F.E. have teamed up with the BBC to stage the free DSI event on Saturday 19 November at the Phoenix Centre, Monymusk Place , Drumchapel.
Derek Shannan, for the Commission’s Scottish Lowlands team, said:
“Live 'n' Deadly has a huge fanbase, with children across the UK watching and taking part in various activities associated with the show.
“By partnering with the BBC we will hopefully encourage many more children and their families to get out into the woods.
“It’s a great way to encourage people – especially youngsters – to get active and will really help us to open their eyes to just some of the fun things they can experience in their local forest.”
DSI presents children with a ‘wildlife crime scene’, and invites them to deduce who’s eaten who! Each child is given a Deadly Detective’s booklet before exploring the outdoor venue to look for clues. The booklet includes a range of activities, to encourage families to enjoy the nature and wildlife at the venue, and a series of puzzles, which help children to solve the Deadly Scene.
Every child who solves the mystery will be awarded a Deadly Detective badge, a certificate to prove their success, and a special code which unlocks exclusive content on Live ‘n’ Deadly’s online game.
The event runs from 1pm until 3pm and solving the crime scene puzzle should take around 1 – 1.5 hours.
Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult – and everyone is advised to wrap up warm….the event will take place out of doors.
Refreshments will be provided.
The event is likely to be very popular so to make sure of securing a place, contact Drumchapel L.I.F.E. on 0141 944 6004 to book a place.
