That’s the message from the Forestry Commission as rangers stage an exciting day of activities in 225 acre Ollerton Pit Woods, Notts, to help youngsters beat the summer blues.

There’ll be chance to go on a wildlife safari, make wind chimes and learn circus skills, all topped off by a jacket potato lunch cooked over a campfire!

All you have to do to take part in the event on Wednesday 4 August is book a place on 01623 822447.

Ranger Amy Chandler said:

“We want to get youngsters off the sofa and into the great outdoors to keep healthy and active and have loads of fun into the bargain.”

The cost is £3 per child and activities run from 10am to 2pm, meeting at the wood car park off Newark Road, Ollerton.
