Devon village create 'safari trail' for local children

Meerkats on lawns, penguins in back gardens and a panda in a telephone box - a Devon village has been taken over by creativity and creatures.

In the face of Covid-19, Morchard Bishop primary school has struggled to fundraise through its traditional events, so a plan was hatched.

Households and businesses in the village created wild animal displays to form a safari trail around the village.

The money raised during half term is going towards Covid-safe Christmas activities for the children in the face of normal festivities being cancelled, and some money will go towards the school’s garden project.
