Woodland Festival – A Great Success!

A glorious day of sunshine and celebration attended by over two hundred people took place in the middle of Wilkies Wood on Saturday.  Positive comments from young and old were received and there was much appreciation for the diverse range of displays and activities available ranging from green woodworking, charcoal making, mask making, willow weaving, bush craft and nature activities put on by Wild Things!, music making, a bee display, great food and drink and visually interesting displays about the Trust’s work and the landowners involved.

Those attending the guided walks that were run throughout the day learnt more about the land and the specialist lichen walks were a real eye opener for those that were able to gain a place on them.  The tractor rides around the woods and the animal mask making seem to have been a couple of the highlights for the many children that attended.

In amongst the laid back party atmosphere, information was gathered that will be incorporated into the report on the vision for managing the land. A further twenty-five people also joined the trust.

There was a strong voice from those that attended to make this an annual event.

Huge thanks go out to the many people who came together to give of their time and energy to make this event such a success – Thank you!

Have a look at some photos taken during the day.
