From Monday 18 to Sunday 24 February, local youngsters will have the chance become mini explorers, as Rushden Rangers returns for the half term.

Children will be invited to roam Rushden Lakes in search of bugs and insects hidden around the stores and restaurants. To take part, all families have to do is collect an activity pack from customer services or the Nene Wetlands Visitor Centre.

Plus, The Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgshire and Northamptonshire will be hosting even more half term fun at the Nene Wetlands Visitor Centre from Saturday 16 February.
