Sandwell Play Service will be in back in Warley Woods during half term on Thursday 19th February offering Forest Play for 8-14 years old 10am – 3pm. This includes crafts, tree climbing and campfire activities. Forest Friends runs on the same day but is for 3-7 year olds with their parents. 10 – 12 -for stories, rope swings, den building etc. There has been a change in arrangements since last autumn which means that all sessions for both age groups need to be booked as they are so popular. Please don’t just turn up as you may be disappointed. For more information and to book call 0845 352 7853 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Trust’s first event of the year will be on Saturday 24th January with our bird spotting walk. It is led this year by Liz Coleman, Warley Woods Trustee and RSPB volunteer. Come and explore the Woods with her and learn about the birds that live and visit the different parts of the site. The sightings will be entered into the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch. £2 for adults, children free. Meet at 10am at The Pavilion, Lightwoods Hill.
We have the West Midlands schools cross country championships at Warley Woods on 17th January in the morning, so the park will be very busy. If you like a peaceful walk, then we’d recommend coming in the afternoon, but please come in the morning and cheer the young participants on.
