More chances to enjoy Wildlings at Wolseley

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is offering youngsters additional chances to sign up and take part in its Wildlings sessions at its Wolseley Centre headquarters, near Rugeley.

Wildlings sessions give children, aged from six months to five years old, the chance to play and explore nature in the centre’s outdoor classroom, uninterrupted by adults.

The Trust – the county’s largest nature conservation charity – is set to run afternoon Wildlings on the first Friday of each month, starting on Friday 2nd November between 1.30pm-3pm.

Weekend Wildlings sessions are also being introduced and are now underway, taking place on the third Sunday of the month.

These sessions are being held in addition to the regular weekly Wildlings which take place every Friday at Wolseley between 10.30am-12pm.

Aimee Burrows, Wildchild Officer for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “It has been great to see our Wildlings sessions prove so popular since they were launched in 2017.

“Throughout the summer, Wildlings has sold out and we’ve been told by plenty of parents that it would be nice if we could do afternoon and weekend sessions too, as their children attend nursery in the morning so can’t attend.”

The cost is £5 per child and £3 per additional sibling. Places can be booked online via
