Dinosaurs and fossils enabled children to learn in a fun environment in Ely.

Ely Wildlife Watch, the junior branch of the Wildlife Trust, held an event called ‘Life Before Man’ at the city’s library on Saturday.

More than 20 children enjoyed dinosaur puzzles, looking at fossils and making plaster casts, as well as a time-line pass the parcel and quiz.

Local geologist Peter Hoare also attended to educate the youngsters.

The next meeting of Ely Wildlife Watch is ‘Winter Wanderings’ on Saturday, February 8.

Children should wrap up warm and meet at the Fisherman’s Carpark in Ely at 2pm to explore Roswell Pits for birds and other winter wildlife.
