Jubilee Party in Hagg Wood  - 14 July 2012

Over the last few months we have been very busy planting trees, shrubs and wild flowers, with the help of local children, their parents, grandparents and friends. The majority of the trees were provided free by the Woodland Trust in recognition of the Queen’s Jubilee. To celebrate the completion of the planting, we decided to hold a Jubilee party in the wood and this took place on Saturday 14th July. We were entertained with some delightful music and song from local musicians (John, Caroline, Tim, Nelly, Richard and Sam) and there was also an opportunity for everyone to participate, as there was a good supply of African style drums available. With the minimum of tuition we were able to follow the beat and join in.  Cath Bashforth from the Forestry Commission helped with crafts for the children and provided a nature quiz with a royal theme. There were plenty of cakes and soft drinks and even the weather was kind to us, the rain holding off until the end of what was a very pleasant afternoon.
