About the event

Join us as we celebrate Andover's Four Fun Fridays! Get a close look at the Upper Anton's wildlife with our water trays - can you spot insects, snails, or even fish? You can even take a bit of the wild home by making your own origami frog.

This event is part of Open Chalk Streams, a project within the Watercress and Winterbournes Landscape Partnership Scheme. We're protecting, enhancing, and celebrating the Rivers Test and Itchen headwaters - learn more.
