Friends of Holmhills Wood Community Park is organising four free, fun sessions for older people in the park this winter. Organiser Karen Smith said: “Warm yourself by the fire, have a cup of tea and keep fit in beautiful woodland. Come outside to play with our Volunteer Community Champion, Magdalen Muir, who will lead these sessions for the over 50s. Enjoy some gentle walking, explore your local park, get crafty and try some festive outdoor cooking.”

Supported by funding from the Forestry Commission, the sessions will be held on four Sunday afternoons on the following dates: 20 November, 27 November, 4 December and 11 December from 1-4 pm on each Sunday. Shelter, hot drinks and biscuits, fire and toilet facilities will be provided. Please wear warm, waterproof clothing and shoes/wellies.

Places are limited and must be booked.  Please call/text Karen on 07773 332017 or send a message on Facebook here.
