Wildlife Events for Children with John Bray Cornish Holidays


As business supporters of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, and the Polzeath Marine Conservation Group, we are delighted to be partnering with them during 2016 to offer four fabulous beach based wildlife events to educate our small (and big) guests on the variety of wildlife thriving on our beaches. There is no charge for John Bray Cornish Holiday guests (usually £2 per child) but booking is essential and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
