We have moved our Nature Day to Saturday May 11th.  

It's the perfect opportunity to drop in and have a look at what's going on at Fox Wood. There's lots for your children to do - hammocks, swings, dens, bike track, mud kitchen, potion mixing station, bug hunting, toasting marshmallows...

Only 50p per adult on the gate, plus a couple of activities with a small charge to help with fundraising.

Looking forward to meeting lots of new people.

Best wishes

Ange and Lou
