Lyme Regis Museum holds fun events through Easter
Lyme Regis Museum has announced details of its Easter schedule, with a number of special family events commencing on April 4th and going on until the 12th.
The programme begins with the Easter Family Fun Day that will let parents and children make and decorate their own Easter birds. Local artist Alison Bowskill will be in charge of the session, which is absolutely free to attend and provides all of the art materials required.
Following this will be a series of fossil hunting walks, led by experts Paddy Howe and Chris Andrew, on the 5th, 6th, 9th and 10th of the month. Come along to the bookable activity for the chance to discover a 150-million-year-old ammonite!
April 7th sees two events put on by the museum; firstly, a guided walk of Lyme Regis celebrates the life of Mary Anning, arguably the most famous fossil collector of all time, who spent her whole life in the town. Then, back at the museum, Paddy and Chris host a ‘Know Your Fossils’ talk, which encourages visitors to bring along and identify their own specimens.
Finally, two rockpooling sessions on the 11th and 12th will allow anyone interested to go down to the beach and spot squat lobsters, velvet swimming crabs and a variety of other interesting sea creatures.
