Children are welcome at 7pm to take part in batty craft activities before a short introductory talk at 7.30pm to all ages.

Talk on the Bats and Mills in the Broads, by Andrea Kelly, Senior Ecologist at the Broads Authority, Thursday 12th April 2018

Water, Mills and Marshes is the Broads Landscape Partnership Project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project has a big focus on recording and repairing some of the iconic drainage mills on Halvergate marshes, an area which boasts one of the greatest concentration of such mills in Europe. As well as the heritage focus, the enhancement of mills as places for wildlife was explored, with a focus on providing enhancements for bats.
