CHILDREN enjoyed some woodland wonder with a day of fun in the Forest.

On Saturday 23 September, LEAF (Locally Encouraging All to Flourish’ held ‘Fun in the Forest’ in the Forest School by Ledbury Primary School.

Becky Davis, Forest School Leader, arranged and delivered all of the activities which were enjoyed by the young and not so young.

The day was blessed with blue skies and sunshine, a beautiful autumn morning, which attracted a good number of families with children aged from babies pre-crawling to early teens.

There was a wide range of activities, including, teddy hunt, woodland floor art /mandalas, nature spotting, story around campfire, art and craft , hammock and rope swing etc.

Younger children worked together with older ones and adults to produce a beautiful leaf art mandala. The morning finished with hot drinks and a picnic lunch.
