Torness visitor centre goes wild!

Visitors to the Torness visitor centre have been taking a walk on the wild side during the school holidays.

More than 400 people have dropped in to the East Lothian facility so far to take part in a summer safari adventure.

The power station’s nature trail has been transformed with safari adventurers being given the chance to find out about nature and the wild African safari animals; they may even spot a giraffe amongst the trees!

Once they have completed the trail they are then able to go back to the visitor centre to take part in crafts, including elephant modelling, and to learn a bit about the power station.

Visitor centre co-ordinator, Faith Scott, said: “We are hoping for busy summer on the safari adventure and it’s been great to welcome so many people through our doors so far. The children have been full of enthusiasm for the trail!

A visiting parent said: “I would like to praise all the staff at the visitor centre. My friend and I visited with our children. They really enjoyed finding the elephants, crocodiles and meerkats. They then took part in some crafts to earn their wildlife passports. Everything was well organised and even though it was very busy the staff were great with the children and nothing was too much trouble.”

The safari trail is open Monday - Friday 10:00-15:00, until 30 August.
