AN UPCOMING event designed with families in mind is set to take place this week.

The 'What's that Buzz?' event is being held on Thursday, May 30, put together by two nature-based organisations, Greening Maindee and the Gwent Wildlife Trust.

Kathy Barclay from Greening Maindee said the event was arranged "to engage people in noticing nature and Gwent Wildlife Trust would like to train people in how to record it".
