Children playing at a woodland fun dayGo wild this half term

The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country are inviting families in Bilston to go wild at a family fun day in Peascroft Wood on Thursday 30th October.

As part of the new 3-year project in partnership with Wolverhampton City Council and largely funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to improve this treasured natural space, they are putting on activities to get more families out exploring their local woodland. Activities for kids on the day will include den building, games and making art out of natural materials found in the wood.

Peascroft Wood Reserve Officer, Alison Wilkes of The Wildlife Trust, explains: “The best way to make kids value woodlands like Peascroft is to put on days like this, so that they have fun there. It’s a lovely place to spend time and playing in the woods in the autumn must be one of the best ways to spend half term.”

Families are invited to drop in any time on Thursday October 30th from 11am and 2pm with no need for advanced booking. The wood can be accessed from Central Avenue and there is a car park Mountford Lane, not far from there.

This is the first of a number of similar events The Trust will be running at Peascroft Wood where they are also running regular volunteer days on Thursdays and the fourth Sunday of each month.
