Snail Race!!

12 June 2015

The long awaited day arrived: Snail Racing day in Nature Club. The competitors were raring to go, egged on by tempting lettuce leaves they charged along the track to the finishing line...well 'charged' may be a slight exaggeration! Reporters were on hand to capture the moment:

“S.L.O.W. Blob made a spectacular comeback at the annual Snail Racing Championships by speeding up tremendously and won by at least 5cm (half a track). He was owned by Hannah and Jinny, who were very proud of their amazing snail”.
Reporters Hannah and Jinny

"When we were racing today he was so amazing in his first race". Emma and Isobelle are the proud owners of a white shelled snail who is amazing. "He came second, amazing for his elderly age" Uniwolf is a talented snail who came to the Bramcote CofE Nature Club race with the look of determination on his face.
Reporters Isobelle and Emma

PLEASE NOTE: No snails were harmed in the race, all were fed washed organic lettuce and were retired to a garden for a long and happy rest from their endeavours. (Well out of the way from other courgettes and lettuce!).
