Broadhembury Memorial Hall will be hosting an event to help people do their bit to promote biodiversity.

Kate Yeo, of the Devon Wildlife Trust, will be talking to visitors about the best plants and habitats to attract bees, beetles, birds and butterflies and plan 'creature features' for the garden.

There will be a small charge for adults of £5, but children under 16 can go for free.

Places are limited at the event, at 2pm on Saturday, April 3, which is organised by the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership, as part of its countryside events programme, which runs until the summer.

The programme contains a wide variety of different activities.

This year is International Year of Biodiversity, so many of the events aim to promote an understanding of the rare and important species of plants, animals, insects and birds found in the Blackdown Hills.

There are also opportunities to try some of the most popular events, such as stargazing, family bushcraft and storytelling, as well as the chance to try something new.

For those who want to explore the Blackdowns and discover just what a special place it is, there are a range of guided walks going on throughout the area.

The events programme is available online by visiting www.midweekherald.co.uk and clicking on the link, where you can see the full listings and an electronic copy of the leaflet.

Printed versions are available from Tourist Information Centres, libraries, shops and pubs, or you can call on (01823) 680681, or email blackdownhills@devon.gov.uk to request a copy.
