Foxglove on Tour! And more…

Monday, October 3rd 2016

Last weekend we were out and about in the local area: On Saturday we were at Northdale Horticulture for the first ever Northdale Wood Fest. This was a lovely child-friendly event about all things wood and trees!

On Sunday, we headed north, to Eppleby Village Hall for a Celebrating Rural Life event. The event was an opportunity for people to find out about their local groups and to try something new. A varied range of groups had stalls with themes including growing, cooking, crafts, sports and rural skills.

At both events our children’s ‘make a wooden owl’ activity was very popular and we met lots of interesting groups, some we have already have links with and some we are now looking to do more with!

In other news, those who have visited the Field Centre recently may already have seen the wonderful footage of our water voles having a tiff captured recently by visitor Fleur Miles. If you haven’t seen it – it’s now on our youtube account at:
