About the event

Make your Forest Friend by the Welcome Hut, using wool to tie a short stick (arms) to a 'y' shaped stick (body and legs). Give your Forest Friend a scarf if you wish and take a couple of extra pieces of wool with you to add on a headdress, trousers or a skirt using any natural materials you come across - let your imagination get creative!

From the Welcome Hut head off on the mile long circular 'Wild Walk' loop and keep an eye out for the activity signs on the way.

Have fun!
