June Highlights...

04th July 2016
June started off in a bit of a heatwave with some extremely hot and sunny days. Although looking like it was going to be a good summer, we then faced a lot of rain pours towards the end of the month. It still remained warm though and of course all this rain we got helped a lot of wildlife grow!

The health walks continued well throughout June and the walkers reached a big achievement of breaking a total of 500 miles! Well done to everyone who comes along on our health walks and making this 500 mile mark!

June was also a big month for Himalayam Balsam – an invasive species which we have been working together with various people to help cut this back. There has been some volunteer sessions with drop in volunteers who have helped cut back on this species. The employability project have also contributed time to cutting back on the himalayam balsam. A number of schools made a point of coming out to the stables to do a himalayam balsam pull session – Holybrook High & St Oswals.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped out in the Himalayam Balsam control.

As well as all of our usual events throughout June, there was also some other successful events. We had a teddys bears picnic and a summer solstice stroll – a long walk for the longest day of the year.

Finally coming up in July we have our Doggie Day on Wednesday 6th 2.00pm – 4.00pm. Calling all canines, bring your owners for some fun for all the family! On Wednesday the 27th 12.00 – 3.00pm, there is a Forest Family Funday, with lots of activities, games and fun!
