Suitable for Children, plenty of room for little ones and bigger little ones! Under 16 are free!
In Rebugging the Planet, Vicki Hird shows us that bugs are beautiful, inventiveand economically invaluable. They are also responsible for pollinating plants,feeding birds, defending crops and cleaning water systems. But with 40% of insect species at risk of extinction and a third more endangered, our planet is headed towards an insect apocalypse. We have to start giving worms, spiders, beetles, ladybirds and butterflies the space they need to flourish!
On Gallows Down is a powerful, personal story shaped by a landscape deeply loved; one that ripples and undulates with protest, change, hope - and the search for home. From the girl catching the eye of the 'peace women' of Greenham Common to the young woman protesting the loss of ancient and beloved trees, and as a mother raising a family in tied and tenanted farm cottages on grand, country estates, this is the story of how Nicola came to write - as a means of protest.
