A few events coming up at Warley Woods. Firstly two nature walks. 4th May there is a chance to walk the Woods with Chris Shortis. He’s our official tree advisor, but also a local resident who uses the woods. A walk with him is always fascinating (10am at the Pavilion, £2 adults, children free). Then an early start on Saturday 11th May 5am for the Dawn Chorus Walk. Matt Hadlington is a ranger at Sandwell Valley, but also a Warley Woods volunteer. He’ll be leading the walk, supported by Liz Coleman. Again meet at the Pavilion, £3 for adults, including a cuppa. Finally tickets are on sale for Alice – an extraordinary adventure – our professional theatre show this year Sunday 16th June at 3pm.

There will be the usual two options, Forest Friends (10am- 12pm) for ages 3-7 with their parents and Forest Play (10am – 2.30pm) for ages 8-14.
