This weekend enjoy a family event walking through Bishops Wood.

Visitors can explore and experience woodlands in different ways by making your own tree identification book and learning about the different uses of trees.

The event will be an opportunity for children to make craft items with woodland products, listen to stories about woodland animals and fairytale adventures.

“There will be plenty of activities to occupy everyone and everything will be repeated during the day to give people the chance to try out more of the sessions”

– John Rhymer, Secretary of Friends of Bishops Wood
