Forest school training

The Outdoor Learning Club volunteers are undertaking their level 2 Forest School Training tomorrow (Saturday 21st February) and next Saturday (28th February), so they won’t be in the woods to facilitate the club in the morning. The ropes will be left out however, so do come along for an informal outdoor play anyway. OLC volunteers will be back the following week with lots of new skills, excitement and enthusiasm. Have fun playing. Please remember! when on the meadow and in the wood parents are responsible for their children at all times.

Spring Festival


Come and join us on the 1st of March, 2pm onwards, to plant a bluebell woodland. Enjoy some storytelling and traditional games and outdoor play. Everyone welcome.

The Children’s Wood becomes a charity

We’d like to thank everyone who has been part of this grassroots initiative to get children and the community outside more, and to preserve a woodland experience in an urban setting. It is with great pleasure that we become a charity, SC045378. There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes to make this happen and we’d like to thank all of the volunteers who were involved. We look forward to seeing you on the meadow and in wood soon. Thank you.
