Thank you very much to the team at Global Foods who have donated £1,500 to the Trust today. Jas, Lisa and Pete are pictured here with Viv, the Trust Manager. Jas got in contact with the Trust because her children told her about the vandalism on the greens at Warley Woods in July and they wanted to try and help.
Global Foods is a NISA store and each store builds up a charity pot of money which comes from sales on particular own brand goods and then the shop can decide which charities should receive that money. We are really grateful that they have thought of us, as this is a significant sized donation.
They are also raising money for the Trust through their Christmas Raffle where you can get free tickets if you spend £10, but you can buy tickets for £5 – prizes include a gents mountain bike, high street vouchers and Cadbury World tickets. The draw runs until 20th December.
There will be a Halloween Trail in Warley Woods on 31st October. Come to the Pavilion to register and collect your map and find your way to the different tableau to find out about the ghosts of Warley Woods. It costs £1.50 per person (adult or child). It is a popular event and there are often queues to register, so if you want to beat the queue, buy your wristband in advance in the shop and just pick up your map on the night. The scary trail will be available from 6pm.
They have arrived at last, the Warley Woods Community Trust christmas cards for 2014 – they are now on sale in the shop in the Pavilion. They are packs of 4 (one of each design) for £1.95 or by 3 packs for £5.50. Thank you to Andrew Smith, Jenny Pearce and Rachel Falcon for allowing us to use the beautiful pictures.
The Trust’s Annual General Meeting is taking place on Saturday 18th October at 2pm. All members welcome to hear about the previous year, future plans and to ask questions of staff and trustees.
We have our annual Fungi Walk coming up, led by the incredibly knowledgeable Bill Moodie. No need to book. Just come to the Trust office at the Pavilion. £2 for adults, youngsters free. Just to note, this is about learning about fungi and looking at them – it isn’t about finding out which ones you can pick and eat!
