Children on the Easter trail, Cardinham Woods

The Forestry Commission has a range of fun events planned for children during the Easter holidays.

From Friday 2 April through to Saturday 10 April children can take part in the ever-popular Easter trail.  Between 10.30am and 3.30pm children can get their clue sheets from the Ice Cream Shack at Woods Café for £2 each. 

They can then let of steam in the forest to find all the clues hidden by the Easter bunny to claim their prize. 

On Tuesday 13 April people are invited to come and meet some of Cardinham’s smallest residents, learn animal signs and investigate owl pellets.  Meet the Mice is aimed at children over eight and runs from 9.30am until 11.30am.  The cost is £5 per child and accompanying adults go free.

For something a bit more hands on, why not attend a Build a Bird Home event on Friday 16 April.  Children aged seven and over can build homes for garden birds, owls, hedgehogs and dormice.  People should bring clothes they don’t mind getting dirty and the cost is £6 per box. 

Woods Café at Cardinham is also open throughout Easter providing its usual friendly atmosphere and delicious home cooked lunches, cakes and cream teas. It is also introducing its new ice cream shack serving the creamiest, most delicious Callestick Cornish Ice Cream made with pure wholesome milk, cream and the finest fruits.

Booking is essential for Meet the Mice and advisable for Build a Bird Home by calling 01392 834233.
