Looking for ideas of things to do in Warley Woods this summer?
We have Forest Play on Thursdays, Golf Camp on various days and football fun and multisports activities.
If you prefer doing things at your own pace, but want some ideas, then have a look at our Summer Challenge leaflet for inspiration.
We are celebrating some special bears in Warley Woods. Bentley Bear is part of the Big Sleuth – a trail of decorated sunbears, around Birmingham and parts of the Black Country. Our bear has been designed by young people of bearwood and created by Rebecca Cresswell. We also have our own Barclay human sized friend. We have launched our successors to the Humphry and Repton cuddly bears with our own versions of Bentley and Barclay who can be found in the Warley Woods Shop at the Pavilion. They are £12.50 each, with 50p of each sale going to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
There are over 100 bears that can be visited on the trail and you can find out more here http://thebigsleuth.co.uk/ and Bentley will be in Warley Woods until mid September.
Places still available for over 8’s on the free Forest Play sessions at Warley Woods. Thursdays during school holidays. Lots of fun in the outdoors. Contact email@example.com to book or for more information.
There will be some official activity in Warley Woods overnight at the Abbey Road entrance. Our Children’s Hospital Sleuth bear will be installed between 1 and 2am. There is the official launch today with all the bears together and then they are starting the roll out overnight tonight. I don’t think it will disturb anyone as it is just one lorry and a forklift, but I didn’t want anyone to be concerned thinking unauthorised people were in the park. We can look forward to seeing Bentley Bear “appear” in the morning. The offical launch is next Monday when there will be maps and an app showing the location of all the bears.
