Neagh Discovery Centre Green Balloon Club Event.
What an amazing day for the crowds that turned up. Despite
one heavy shower, the sun shone and nearly 3000 people came
along to this fantastic fun day out for all the family.
There were loads of fun activities for everyone, from pond
dipping and minibeast hunts to bird watching and boat trips
out on the lough. Some lucky nature enthusiasts even got
to take pumpkin plants home with them to nurture.
For many though, there was one main attraction - hundreds
of parents and excited children turned up to see our special
surprise guest Jelly from the CBeebies
television show, the Green Balloon Club.
Jelly entertained all who came and happily
saw every child who had patiently queued for photos and
autographs. There were sing-alongs, a question and answer
session, a sneak preview of the latest episode of the Green
Balloon Club and the great news that a new episode will
be filmed in Northern Ireland later this year!
We have some great pictures of the events at St
Columb's Park, Greenmount
Even though Green Balloon Club Week is now over have a
look at the Green
Balloon Club Make and Do page where you can download
our amazing Nature Tales books or listen to the stories
read by Huw Edwards on the Nature Tales CD.
