Over 100 people attended the free event, organised by the Friends of Ridge Wood, and supported by Hanson Aggregates. There was a quiz trail through the woodland, which culminated in a forest glade where the children were helped to make willow crowns, twig pencils and air dry clay creatures as souvenirs of their day.

This was one of a programme of free events organised by the Friends of Ridge Wood for the local community and follows on from the successful Evening Chorus Walk, A Moth Discovery Evening led by local expert Ray Barnett, is taking place on Friday 2nd October as part of South Gloucestershire Council’s Discover festival.
