On Thursday 6 December WWT Martin Mere is hosting it’s first toddler Christmas party.
Martin Mere welcomes thousands of toddlers every year to the centre and this year we are putting on a special event to wish families a happy Christmas. There will be story time, toddler party games, you can make and design your own Christmas party crown, meet Father Christmas (small charge) as he gives out free gifts and bird seed, hand feed the birds, see thousands of swans feed on the mere and watch our family of otters play.
There is also a special offer in Mere Side Café: If you buy an adults Christmas lunch (£7.50) you can get a free childs Christmas lunch.
Centre Manager, Andy Wooldridge, said: “Every year, the numbers of toddlers visiting Martin Mere increases and this has been very evident this year as we have launched ‘Toddler Thursdays’ and our brand new play area. We wanted to do something that can make Christmas very special for them and we came up with this idea of a party.”

Notes to editors
• WWT saves wetlands worldwide – a critical habitat which is disappearing at an alarming rate. We act to identify and save severely threatened wildlife, such as the Madagascar pochard, which has been given a more secure future thanks to our decades of experience in conservation breeding.
• Our researchers have been monitoring wildlife in the UK for more than 60 years, observing changes and finding solutions.
• We put people at the heart of all our work, because conservation needs support to succeed.
• And we share what we learn with experts around the world and with our 200,000+ members, the 60,000 school children who come on an educational visit to our nine wetland visitor centres in the UK, and the million people who visit us each year to enjoy a wetland experience.
• We manage over 2,600 hectares of wetlands across the UK which between them support over 200,000 waterbirds and other wildlife.
• WWT members enjoy free access to all nine visitor centres and are kept up to date with developments through an award-winning quarterly magazine, Waterlife.
