Fun times had by all at The Plantation

The Woodland Wildlife Weekend took place over Easter in conjunction with the national Wildlife Trust's campaign to encourage more families to enjoy the woodlands in their local area. The event was completely free and is just one of many family orientated events taking place in the Meres and Mosses area this spring and summer. For details of upcoming events for the whole family, please visit our events pages here

Children Enjoying Shropshire's Wildlife

An elaborate network of ropes was constructed in the woodland, which allowed children to climb from tree to tree and see what life might be like as a squirrel, at the same time as having some great fun.

Shropshire Woodland

Sue Kirk, a local willow artist built a wonderful ‘nest’ and children and adults helped to add sticks and twigs which helped them appreciate how tricky nest building is! To find out more about some of the amazing work that Sue has weaved, visit her website www.suekirkwillowbaskets.co.uk
