This year, Jurassic Coast Activity Days at Ladram Bay will feature a mix of plaster fossil painting, story-telling from Branscombe’s Tony Lambert, a display of the Trust’s incredible collection of real coastal fossils, and family-friendly art workshops from Ottery St Mary-based artist Colin Bentley. There’ll also be guided walks from Ladram Bay either eastwards to Sidmouth, or westwards to Budleigh Salterton, led by Anthony Cline from Exmouth.
As well as tomorrow’s session, there’ll be dates in May, August and October for Ladram Bay’s guests to enjoy. Sessions start at 11am in the Three Rocks Complex, with the guided walk taking place at 2pm.
Guy Kerr, Community Coordinator for the Jurassic Coast Trust, said, “We are so pleased to work with Ladram Bay Holiday Park again this year. Our Ambassadors are knowledgeable and passionate local volunteers who love sharing the coast’s incredible stories with visitors from across the UK and beyond. We can’t wait for another brilliant year and encourage everyone on-site at the park to join us for the fun.”
Ladram Bay Holiday Park contributes an annual donation to the Jurassic Coast Trust as one of their official Business Partners. This helps to fund training and recruitment of the Ambassadors, as well as conservation and education initiatives across the 95 miles of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
