Calling all dog owners. On Saturday June 28th we are launching our new project —Warley Woof. The project is aimed at bringing together dog owners/walkers and Warley Woods Community Trust so that we can work together for the benefit of all park users. Our first event, on 28th, are 2 sessions on dog behaviour led by Hannah Molloy from Pawfect Dogsense and Deborah Yuill from Warley & District Dog Training Club. The sessions run from 10 am to 12 noon and 2 pm to 4 pm and must be booked in advance (429 2440). There will be more seminars in the future and if you and your pet join Warley Woof you will be the first to hear about them. Leaflets are available in the Pavilion and there is more information on the website www.warleywoods.org.uk Our aim is to create a friendly community of dog owners working together with the Trust.
Final reminder about Picnic in the Park on Sunday July 13th. Yes we know it’s World Cup Final day but the Picnic finishes at 6 pm so you’ll have plenty of time to get back home and get ready for the match (if that’s what you want to do). Music starts at 1 pm and the Dog Show at 2 pm (registration from 1.30). Lots of stalls and other events going on throughout the afternoon. Thanks to Companion Care Vets for their continued sponsorship of this event.
We have requests for help with the Picnic.
—If you have any tombola prizes or second hand books that you would like to donate for the Trust stalls please bring them to the office/shop as soon as you can.
—If you can make cake(s) for us to sell on the Trust stall please take them to the stall on the day (from 1.30—2pm)
—If you can help with the set up in the morning, either come to the Pavilion at 8 am where we will need a few strong people to load the equipment into the van, or go to the meadow at 9 am to start putting up the marquees. We will also need help at the end of the day to get everything put away again. If you able to assist on the day it would help if you could let Viv know (420 1061) so we can allocate volunteers to the best places, but we’ll still be glad to see you even if you haven’t had a chance to contact us.
It’s Warley Day on Saturday (June 21st). This is an opportunity for golfers who play at Warley to show their skills and have a fun day together playing golf and with other competitions throughout the day. You could also win a car—if you get a hole in one! There are just a few places left and the weather is set fair so why not ring the shop and book in. (429 2440).
Tickets for Theatre in the Woods are now on sale. This year the play is Shakespeare’s Macbeth and is being staged in the meadow on Sunday August 3rd at 7.30 pm. We are really pleased to welcome back Heartbreak Theatre who have put on some great plays for us over the last few years. They are a professional company and really do bring the performance to life! Tickets are £12 each, £8 children and £35 for a family (2 adults and 2 children). Thanks to Derek Spires for sponsoring this event again. You can buy tickets in the shop or online here.
Our annual Bat Walk is on Friday August 15th starting at 8.15 pm. It will again be led by Brumbats who will bring their bat detectors for people to use. Cost is £3 for adults and free for children—this includes a drink and use of the bat detectors.
We have recently had some tree damage around the perimeter path at the edge of the golf course. It looks as if some is caused by dogs and some by knives. If you see anyone damaging the trees please call the police (101) and let us know in the office.
If you haven’t visited the shop recently do come back and see the changes! Thanks to volunteers Jason and John for their hard work. Sharon has new stock coming soon!
