For something a little different, there will be a Children's Christmas Campfire at RSPB Conwy Nature Reserve. The website says 'Help collect wood from around the nature reserve, then together we will build a campfire, showing you how to light the fire and how to look after it safely. Next it's time to toast some marshmallows and making a gooey treat called a "S'more"? Remember to wrap up warm! There may be time for a Christmas story around the campfire too! Booking essential.' The places are filling up fast, with the final available session being held on Tuesday the 22nd of December from 11am – 12.30pm. To book a place, please call 01492 584091.
