Students from Cottage Grove Primary School were treated to a fantastic presentation from Nigel that included video clips of his travels around the world, visiting some well known sites for whale watching and even being chased by prehistoric, early whales!



We had a number of life-sized inflatable whales, dolphins and porpoises decorating our display as well as turtles and seals!
