Early Spring Open Day – Sunday 5th May 2024

Our first Open Day event of the year was another hugely successful event with over 70 visitors coming through the gates and still with a mixture of people who have been here before and visitors who have never been here before. Once again the weather was kind to us, which allowed all to really enjoy this magical part of the area.

As always, committee member Nigel Duncan was involved in pond dipping activities and as can be seen, he discovered newts in the pond.

Another established activity is committee member Rich Sylvester keeping the children entertained with story telling.

Of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without the refreshment stall featuring home made cakes and biscuits. Well over £100 was raised this afternoon, all the money goes back in to the maintenance and running of the woodlands.

Activities that allow adults and children to get involved are another part of our day’s events. Climbing on recently fallen trees connects with nature and, we hope, brings a respect for the natural environment.

Finally, quick-thinking committee member Pip O’Byrne had her camera at the ready and took some photos of mice which were scurrying around in the Glade area. Doesn’t it look cute!
