We are excited to launch the first stage of our new Hide & Seek Project in somerset! We have transformed conventional bird hides into a literary wonderland, with story corners installed in the Decoy Hide and Meare Heath Hide on the Avalon Marshes. Come and read some lesser-known Somerset folk stories, along with our top five wetland book recommendations. Both hides feature creative writing prompts designed to inspire creativity and reflection.
The second stage of the Hide & Seek Project relies on you, so please visit the hides, pick up a postcard and contribute your stories, memories, drawings and recommendations to our story repository, because it’s our belief that by sharing and creating stories we can better understand our relationship with the natural world. And don’t forget to take away with you a free poem from our featured writer, award-winning poet Suzannah Evans.
