Trust to launch new Wildlings sessions in Biddulph

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is giving children the chance to explore, get mucky and play independently at its new Wildlings sessions in Biddulph.

The charity, is launching its popular Wildlings sessions for youngsters in the beautiful setting of Biddulph Grange Country Park.

The sessions are aimed at children aged six months to five years old. Typical exciting activities during a session include mud kitchens, swinging in hammocks, bug hunting, campfires and natural crafts.

Caroline Birchall-Slack, Wildchild Officer for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “Wildlings is a play group with an outdoor twist. It has proved really popular since launching a few years ago and we’re really excited to expand the sessions to another area in Staffordshire.

"Parents or carers must attend the sessions with their child, but are encouraged to take a step back and observe their youngsters in the wild.

“We’re really looking forward to sharing these fun filled sessions with families in the area. We play whatever the weather it’s a wonderful opportunity for little ones to explore the great outdoors."

Families can sign up for £5.50 per child and £3.50 additional sibling.

All sessions include a hot drink for adults, plus juice and snacks for children. 

The first Biddulph Wildlings takes place on Tuesday 16th April  between 10.30am and 12pm. For more info visit www.staffs-wildlife.org.uk/whats-on to book or call 01889 880100.
