Depictions of hundreds of butterflies are being sought for an event in Clarence Park.
The Butterfly Fair is being held on Thursday, September 29, to enable visitors to hear about Save Butterfly World’s plans, and to show that locals back the attraction, which closed late last year.
John Horsfield, chairman of the charity group, said: “We want enough drawings, paintings, and models of butterflies to make a giant butterfly.
“We also want as many children as possible to turn up dressed as butterflies, or just with butterfly wings.”
He explained that the reason for the event was that “over summer we have been regularly contacted by parents who have tried to visit Butterfly World, and had to leave upon finding it closed – often with distressed children.

“This is a chance to spend an afternoon enjoying a celebration of butterflies; we have crafts, face painting, butterfly experts plus a photo display of what was happening at Butterfly World.
“Visitors will be able to hear about our plans and show that St Albans backs Butterfly World.”
