MINIBEASTS, bugs and a giant African snail attracted swarms of families to a fun-filled event promoting sustainability.
The Big Green Leaf event was held at Portsmouth’s Ocean Retail Park and featured colourful characters including Bugella Burrows and Walter Droplet hosting a range of eco-friendly activities and games to encourage youngsters to look after the environment.
The group FoodCycle Portsmouth was celebrating after winning a £1,000 funding boost after a vote by shoppers.
Dominic Ide was there with his four-year-old son, Cory Richardson, from Fratton.
Mr Ide said: ‘It’s a great way to keep children entertained while teaching them about looking after the environment.’
