Bonfire & Open Weekend

Bonfire NightAn invitation…

I do love Autumn. Once you’ve got over that ‘end of summer’ feeling you realize that everything has come alive again in the woods.
The fruit, nuts, fungi – all spectacular this year –  the mist, the smells and, of course, the colours…
We are celebrating it all at Hollington Wood with an open weekend Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th October. As usual, the whole of the wood will be open to all 10am-5pm on both days with no admission charge.
As an added attraction, assuming half-way decent weather, Hilary will be holding a display of early Christmas shopping ideas. Limited parking available on first-come first-served basis but only till 5pm, because…
You are all invited to a bonfire party in the wood on Saturday 26th. The plan is to light the bonfire 5-ish and set off fireworks at about 6.30pm. Refreshments will be on sale but you are welcome to bring your own food and drink. Since we have absolutely no idea how many people will be coming and to prevent vehicle mayhem we ask you not to drive to the wood except to drop off. We are organising a shuttle service from Prospect Place from 5pm-6pm and return shuttle after the fireworks. Appropriate clothing, especially footwear, essential – the planned bonfire site is in the middle of the wood. Torches strongly recommended!
Please do NOT bring your own fireworks but a reasonable financial contribution is requested to help enable us to cover our costs.

They have a wonderful free range life to look forward to. Let us know what you think of them here:
