SUNDAY 27TH JANUARY – BIG GARDEN BIRD WATCH

Time: 11.30am-12.20pm

A free, all ages, annual event to check on the local bird population. No special knowledge needed; just come along and learn.

The bird count and species will be reported to RSPB (Royal Society for Protection of Birds). The count lasts one hour and takes place over one weekend in January across the country. You’ll receive a free bird ID sheet and there will be bird books, binoculars, hot drinks and cake!

MONDAY 28TH JANUARY – LITTLE GARDENERS

Time: 10am-1pm

A free, self-led group for parents, carers and their little ones (babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers all welcome) that takes place at the garden every Monday. Come and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the garden. Plant and pick fruit and vegetables and help keep the garden watered and full of life. Explore all the wildlife and spot frogs, fish, creepy crawlies and the beehives.

Things to note: Bring appropriate clothes for outdoor play including waterproofs and wellies if it’s wet or muddy and warm clothes if it’s cold. Bring food for a picnic and a picnic blanket if it’s dry (otherwise there are covered benches). There is plenty of space to park buggies and bikes undercover. Tea and coffee can be provided for parents and carers. Toilet and hand washing facilities on site. The site is a working community garden with tools, building materials, and non-edible plants. We make every effort to keep the site tidy and safe but your child is your responsibility so you must keep a close watch on them.
