Halloween Happenings

Thank you to small merry band who turned up to get wet in the forest today! We cleared and prepped the trails and performance areas and the “tunnel of terror” for this year’s Fear in the Forest.

You can book your tickets here https://www.forestryengland.uk/dalby-fore…/…/fear-the-forest

We will be back in the forest next Sunday to help with the Centenary planting to which all are welcome. https://www.forestryengland.uk/…/ev…/centenary-tree-planting

Preparations for Halloween

It was lovely to spend the morning in the forest, which is getting more colourful by the day. October’s task was preparation for the Fear in the Forest event that will be happening in Dalby at Halloween. We bashed nettles and tidied up the paths for the walk and the “play station” areas which will be used by the performers on the night. We’re sure the frog will have found a new hiding place by then!
