Island Friends

On Friday the 8th August a quiet anticipation will descend at the old farm on Skomer Island. It's story telling time.

Lucy Griffiths, author of the Island Friends children's books, will be reading out some of her stories inspired by her visits to Skomer and Skokholm Island. Everyone is welcome to come and listen before using one of our new trails packs to have your own Island Adventures. The story telling will go on all day until half past three giving you plenty of time to explore the island on your own too.

 We hope that the event will encourage holiday makers and local people to bring their children to experience Skomer Island, hopefully see our remaining late puffins, and take home some amazing memories.

Our new family trail packs are already proving popular, and are the product of a labour of love for the islands. Lucy has been visiting for years and tries to stay out on Skomer or Skokholm when creating new Island Friends characters and writing new stories.

We hope to see you and your little ones on Friday and throughout August for an Island Adventure.

We stock the Island Friends books in Lockley Lodge and they're available online here
