Interested in joining us for a free afternoon of fun in the forest on Saturday 30 April?
Everyone is welcome, and there are no age limits! Please wear appropriate warm or waterproof clothes and footwear that you don’t mind getting messy.
Debs, Jeannette, Bruce and I are sorting out materials, marshmallows and monsters for the event. Only kidding – but we will have a bonfire and use one of home-made log stoves to boil water when we stop for a chat and a cuppa.
Activities include making pendants, building dens and collecting woodland materials.
We want everyone to enjoy the event and be safe, so please arrive promptly for 2pm. If you are coming by car, please park in Frillinghurst Wood entrance on Prestwick Lane – and follow the yellow signs to the event. Map
You will then choose which activities to do, and hear the Introduction to the event. Children of all ages need to bring a grown-up with them who can stay for the whole event.
There is no charge for the event itself, but we need to ask for a donation towards the cost of bought-in materials. Tea, coffee and squash are provided, but it would be lovely if you brought a cake to share.
1 May is also the International Dawn Chorus Day, and a few people are planning to rise early (about 5 am) and join us in the tranquility of the early morning to hear one of the wonders of the natural world: an English spring dawn chorus. Once the birds have entertained us, we share a pot-luck** breakfast
** everyone brings something to share, so prepare to surprise and be surprised!
