The Woolmer Forest Heritage Society, Whitehill and Bordon Community Trust and the Deadwater Valley Trust played host to the Dinosaur Isle Museum from the Isle of Wight for a Dinosaur Day on Saturday 20th April at The Beehive on Hogmoor Inclosure.

There was an Exhibition of Local Fossils from the Woolmer Forest Heritage Society and those brought over from the Isle of Wight for visitors to find out about their own findings.

It was a real treat for local families and children who were so interested in the displays, and to have the opportunity to hold and touch the fossils

Although not real, Tyrannosaurus rex roamed about Hogmoor to publicise the event and mainly cause havoc, he even made a coffee in Café Hogmoor!!

Woolmer Forest Heritage Society created a Heritage Explorer booklet compiled by Chris Perry for the children to colour in and complete a Dinosaur Quiz. Several successful children completed the quiz and received a prize including Avu and Lewis Nicolaou

Whitehill & Bordon Community Trust hid fossils for the children to find and Deadwater Valley Trust made dinosaur keyrings for the children to take home.

We were also joined by Emily Brand from Popup Play Village. It was great to see so many little dinosaurs running around...

The final words on the day came from two 5 year olds who roared up to the organisers and said “ that was the best day ever…can you do it again” with a request like that I think the answer has to be yes!!

Be sure not miss out on our future events. !!
