BBC Radio Kent visits Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve

BBC Radio Kent's Jo Peacock visits Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve

BBC Radio Kent's Joe Pocock spent a morning broadcasting with us from our Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve recently. We wanted to share with you what we got up to.

We were delighted to welcome BBC Radio Kent's Joe Pocock to our Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve where he broadcasted his morning show slots live from our nature reserve.

As soon as Joe arrived, we set him a challenge to evaluate his bushcraft skills - he had to light a fire using no matches or fuel and make us all a cup of tea!

Thankfully, he got there eventually and we all got our much needed caffeine hit.

Joe had heard that our Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve is somewhat of a Pokemon haven (we now suspect this may have been his motive for coming) and went looking for some virtual wildlife.

We're glad to report that he left our reserve with many full Poke balls.

Linturn, one of our volunteers at Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve, then explained to Joe what a 'day in the life' of a Kent Wildlife Trust volunteer is like, and the difference volunteering has made to him.

You can find out more about volunteering by visiting our volunteer pages.

Joe had so much fun visiting our reserve, he made a video and posted it on the BBC Radio Kent Facebook page.

Our Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve is a wonderful place to visit, and provides you with a great opportunity to get wild this Summer.

We're looking forward to welcoming you to our reserve soon.

Thanks for visiting Joe - we'll see you again soon!
