Such an exciting start to 2019 with the opening of the new Beacon building on Hunterfield Road. This will now be the meeting point for Woodland Wildlings and we will set out on our monthly adventures from there. We are now branching out (literally) to include children and families of all primary school age children, not just 0-5.
As well as our woodland adventures we will be joining in the with the Beacon’s community garden. We have an event on the 9th of February from 11am-3pm that invites you to come and share your ideas about what you would like to see in the garden space. Lunch is included and we’ll be spending time outdoors so wrap up warm. We would love to hear what you think of the space and what we could do with it.
Our January session of Woodland Wildlings saw taking part in the RSPB birdwatch. We set off with binoculars and bird seed and headed down through the birch woods to explore and look out for different birds. We made an evergreen spiral and sprinkled bird seed around it as a treat for our feathered friends in this cold weather. We enjoyed some warming apple tea and hot blackcurrant juice, sharing a picnic too. Just as we were getting ready to head for home, we found a huge worm which caused great excitement and time was spent watching him move around and building a warm house to keep him safe!
It was wonderful to be back outdoors despite the Winter chill. As the saying goes….there is no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing!
We will be meeting again at the end of February. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or check out our Facebook page: Woodland Wildlings
