Children are being invited to join in a fun wildlife puppet making day at Kailzie Gardens, just outside Peebles, on Sunday 15th August.

The event is part of a drive by the Tweed Valley Osprey Project to help educate children all about the amazing ospreys and abundance of wildlife in the area.

Diane Bennett, osprey officer for the project said:

“We have two centres, one at Glentress Forest and the other at Kailzie Gardens. At Kailzie, we have started up our very own puppet theatre with all our own hand made puppets for children to play with.

“Children can create their own plays and perform using the puppets, which are all wildlife characters that are found in the gardens.

“We are very keen for families to come along on the Sunday to the Kailzie osprey centre between 2-4pm for a fun time making their very own puppets… the more the merrier!”

Kailzie Gardens is found just a couple of miles from Peebles town centre on the B7062. For booking and admission charge details please call Kailzie Gardens on 01721 720 007.

The Tweed Valley Osprey Project is a partnership between Forestry Commission Scotland, RSPB Scotland and Kailzie Gardens.
