Find the Deer in Dereham
An event for (accompanied) children:
Come and join us at the car park near the pond on Neatherd Moor any time between
2:00pm and 3:00pm to discover more about deer and their connection to Dereham.
Just bring a pencil to jot down what you find and £2 per child. Please allow an
hour or so to complete the walk
Entry includes a small gift for all
children who complete the hunt around Neatherd Moor.
Deer are shy animals and unlikely to be seen in the middle of the day on a busy
Neatherd moor, but early morning they are about.
Please be aware that parking by the playground may be limited and there are no
toilets on site. Also, we ask that the adults keep an eye on the children at all
Booking is recommended: please TEXT Ken Hawkins with your name and the number of
children on 07505 426750 or EMAIL:
