Family forest day in Carsington

Stuck for an idea for Dad this Father’s Day? Why not treat him to a forest skills day being organised by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust?

The event is based at the trust’s new outdoor classroom at Carsington Water and will give families the chance to explore nature together and try out shelter building, fire lighting and wood carving.

The event takes place on Saturday, June 22, from 11am-3pm and is suitable for adults and accompanied children aged eight to teens. Anyone booking before June 10 will receive a gift voucher to give to Dad. The day costs £10 per adult and £5 per child.
