Hedgehog Club News December 2018

Why not spend the winter with The Hedgehog Club exploring all that the great outdoors has to offer and experience the woods in all their winter glory? We might even have some snowy days!

“There is no such thing as the wrong sort of weather, just the wrong sort of clothing.”

So wrap up, layer up and come and join us in the woods…

In January you can find The Hedgehog Club at:

Deer Park Wood, Witney.

You can find us here every Friday during term time. We will start again on 11th January 2019 and run until February 15th. (A 7-week term.)

As January is the RSPB’s Big Garden Bird Watch we will be focusing on birds for the first few weeks – what ones can we see in the woods, how can we attract them into our garden and make sure they survive the winter.

We will have lashings of hot chocolate available and the fire will burn brightly to cook our snacks. Booking will be available on the website before Christmas and places need to be booked in advance, discounts available for block booking.

Blenheim Palace Family Forest School.

These sessions happen every Wednesday, in the holidays too, from 10.30am -3pm. They are free if you have paid to get into the Palace or have an annual pass. There is no need to book, you can just drop in and stay as long as you like.

The mud kitchen, bug hunting, den building, rope swing and slope sliding are always available. Each week there are other activities to take part in and during term time we will toast marshmallows on the fire. So come and join in the fun.

The Hedgehog Club Birthday Parties.

I also run Woodland Birthday parties at Hailey Community Wood. The package includes making your own party bag, cooking a snack on the fire, den building and natural craft activities. Do get in touch if your child has a birthday coming up and I can send you more information.

Coming up in 2019…

Woodland Club at Cogges. The club will return in the spring once Cogges reopens.

Holiday Activity Days. I am planning some holiday fun in February, April, May and August so keep an eye on the website, Face Book page or join the mailing list to hear about what is happening with The Hedgehog Club. These days will be suitable for all primary aged children.

Lastly, I would like to thank all of you who have supported me in getting The Hedgehog Club started. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to seeing you in 2019.

Best wishes
