One of Suffolk's leading environmental centres is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a family orientated activity day.

Suffolk Wildlife Trust's Redgrave and Lopham Fen visitor centre has become a focal point for visitors and was the region's first 'working' environmental building when it was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in 1998.

Over the last 10 years the range and number of educational events and courses has grown steadily and each year the centre hosts the trust's widely acclaimed wildlife photography exhibition. This year the exhibition takes place between August 23 until 25 and August 30 and 31 and September 6 and 7.

The trust's wild about the fen day takes place on Sunday between 10am and 5pm. There will be bird and dragonfly guided walks, pond dipping, a chance to see the fen's famous raft spiders, owl pellet dissections, apple juice tastings, light lunches and cream teas.
