Volunteer training session @ Oxlip Wood

Volunteer training session @ Oxlip Wood | Sudborough | England | United Kingdom

‘Getting up to speed’ Volunteer training for new and existing volunteers.

In this session we’ll be continuing the work we’ve been doing on getting the Forest School area ready for our first groups of children who’ll be coming along, starting in June.

Gatting familiarised with risk management best practice, in relation to the Forest School area is really important. We’re hopefully going to be setting up the mud play area this week and also doing some work on the seating and fire area. Oh, and maybe some sawing too!

Bluebell walk in Oxlip wood

Much of the wood has a beautiful carpet of blue at this time of year, so be sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity . There will, of course, be many other flowers to see and lots of birds to to see and hear, we will do our best to help with identification if requested. Bring your family and your camera, but no dogs please,  for what promises to be a memorable visit to this ancient woodland.

If you’re interested in coming along to find out about becoming a volunteer at Oxlip Wood, then today could be a great one to choose.

If we’ve got the seating and fire area work done from our last session, then we’ll be doing a cook-out. There’s nothing like Sunday lunch eaten outdoors.

Time’s ticking by and our first group of children will be coming along to Oxlip Owlets in June, so we all need to be sure we’re up to speed with ‘best practice’ to ensure they have a great time.

Butterfly and wild flower saunter

A gentle saunter around the 20 acre ancient woodland will reveal some interesting viewings of butterflies and wild flowers.

A renewed management regime is underway with the aim of increasing the biodiversity ,which of course includes flowers and insect species. Some work was undertaken by the previous owners ,and the benefits should be easy to see?

High summer woodland walk

By this time most of the birdsong is over but flowers should looking good and insect activity at it’s height .

Woodland Explorers Afternoon @ Oxlip Wood
Jul 30 @ 14:00 – 16:30

Woodland Explorers is the theme for this activity afternoon, introducing families to the delights of a privately owned ancient woodland in East Northants, between Corby, Thrapson and Oundle.
The activities will focus on exploring a truly wild place where, in many places, the paths are made by people moving through the undergrowth pushing grasses, often higher than the children themselves, out of the way to find a way through.
A family-based nature hunt game will focus the children’s attention on the natural environment, with other games designed to encourage them to tune into life in a wild woodland.
Refreshments, cold drink and snack, will be provided.
