October half-term

Bring the family this autumn and become a woodland explorer. Visit the activity station in the summerhouse to pick up your ‘50 Things’ guide and plan your adventure. As you crunch through golden leaves and splash in puddles, why not hunt for bugs, create some wild art and build a den in the woodland? Look out for the self-led pumpkin trail during half term.
