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

As usual, the next Work Day will be the last Sunday of the month, Sunday 27th October.  As well as our usual maintenance of the wood,we will be staging an Autumn Walk round the wood.  All are welcome to come along at 11 am and learn more about the ecology of Park Wood.

Like the very enjoyable and informative Spring Walk, this will be led by Lindsay McCulloch (Ecologist, Southampton City Council). Fingers crossed the weather will pick up again and we won't have too much rain next weekend. We will be there from 10 am and, as ever, light refreshments, gloves and all tools will be provided, but please remember to wear suitable footwear. 

Future Events 

In 2020 we are planning our regular Easter Egg Hunt and another Spring Walk with Lindsay, as well as an evening Bat Walk in May.  If all goes well, October should see a return of our Woodland Festival with many different attractions - watch this space for further details!
