Mid July Update
A group of volunteers have been working on the idea of a Code of Conduct for Dogs and their owners. We have produced some ideas in draft form and would welcome comments from both owners and non-owners. If you would like to see this and add your comments please contact the office and we can send you an electronic copy. (420 1061 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
There are various Forest activities for children over the summer holidays. Every Thursday in August (2nd to 30th inclusive) Warley Woods Forest Friends will be running from 10 am to 12 noon. This is for children from 3 to 7 years and their parents/carers. There will be activities such as den building and rope swings all led by a qualified Forest Play practitioner. The activities are free but you need to book in advance – contact Out to Play on 0845 3527853 or e-mail email@example.com There are also sessions for older children, from 8-14 years.
