Countryside crafts in the spotlight at Mydellton Grange
1:46pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
Forest of Bradford is inviting people to attend a day of country crafts and family-friendly activities in the grounds of Mydellton Grange, Langbar Road, Ilkley.
The project reaches a major milestone this year as it reaches its half-millionth tree planted since the project began 15 years ago.
To celebrate this and to kick off the new planting season, a Woodland Celebration Day is being held on Saturday, November 2, between 10am and 3pm.
Traditional countryside crafts including hedge-laying and dry-stone walling will be demonstrated, with a chance to have a go yourself. Guided walks will be held through the day.
Children’s activities including bird and bat box-making and face-painting will be available, as well as warm drinks and food.
In the event of extreme poor weather a decision will be made to postpone the event on the Friday evening prior to the advertised day.
Information will be on the website or call 07814 673631 to check. For more information, call Forest of Bradford (01274) 487270, e-mail email@example.com or visit beat.org.uk.
