Following last years successful Christmas event we are holding another one on SATURDAY 13th DECEMBER between 2 and 6 p.m.
We’ll be running several Christmas themed activities such as a Christmas trail, holly wreath and natural decorations making, robin nest box making, making Christmas badges and Christmas tree decorating. Seasonal refreshments will be available. We need volunteers to help set up from 11 a.m. onwards and to help run the activities. Last year the event was well attended with about 80 local people coming along.

If you can help please contact Pete on 023 92 389591 or Maureen on 023 92232942. We are particularly looking for people to help either with the craft activities, face painting.

If you’re not particularly crafty there will be more practical jobs to do on the day such as keeping the brazier going, refreshments and helping with the making of nest boxes and feeders as well as setting up and taking down the tables, chairs and gazebo.

Work Days

Thank you to all those who came out for the June Work Day, especially the Scouts and their parents who came to help us.  

The next Work Day will be Sunday 28th July, which will include a Teddy Bears Picnic (see below).   The work day will begin at 10 am and as usual, light refreshments, gloves and all tools will be provided, but please remember to wear suitable footwear.
