Tilgate Nature Centre has launched a drawing and poetry competition to give children the chance to meet its meerkats.
Entries should be about any animal at the nature centre and will be displayed in the Discovery Room throughout the summer. The winners will be announced on August 26.
The prize for the winners in the eight to 12-year-old and 12 and over categories will be a Meet the Meerkats experience, while those aged seven and under will win a feed tour with a keeper.
Cllr Chris Mullins, Cabinet member for leisure and culture, said: “Get drawing and writing now and have your artwork and/or poetry displayed in the nature centre. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the entries in the Discovery Room next month.”
Entries can be hand-delivered to the nature centre or posted to Tilgate Nature Centre, Tilgate Park, Crawley RH10 5PQ. Include your name, age and phone number with your entry.
