Snowdrop time

Uncurl from your winter hibernation.

Snowdrops by the bridge on Dudmaston's Dingle walk

Stroll through the snowdrops on 18, 19, 25 and 26 February and be reminded that spring is just around the corner. Take a refreshing walk through the Dingle, amongst these delicate-looking, but hardy flowers.

The abundance of planting we undertook during spring 2016 means that we hope the display will be better than ever, bring along your camera and capture this beautiful flower at its best.

Get the children to grab a '50 things' trail from reception and see how many wintery activities they can tick off. Maybe play 'Pooh Sticks' from the bridge or fly a kite out in the parkland.

Flying a kite is perfect for a winter's day

Feeling hungry after all that walking? Then visit the tea room for a warming bowl of soup and a hot drink. The log fire will be roaring so you can warm up chilly fingers and toes.
