It’s a busy month for the Friends of Middleton Park

Having already run Free Play sessions this Easter – the last one is on Wednesday 12 April 2023, 1-3pm with DAZL running dance activities –  the Friends of Middleton Park have a busy April ahead of them.

On Sunday 16 April they host a Spring Woodland Walk, meeting at the Visitor Centre by the lake at 1:30pm. Please wear suitable walking shoes as some of the walk will be on woodland paths. The route of the walk will depend on weather conditions at the time.

On Tuesday 18 April they are holding an Open Meeting at the Parochial Hall on North Lingwell Road at 7pm. This is a chance to find out more about the Friends, hear about the summer programme and how you can get involved with helping a events. Everyone is welcome.

Then at the end of the month it’s time for the annual Bluebell Walks on Sunday 30 April and Monday 1 May. Meet at the Middleton Railway Park Halt platform at 11:20am, 12:40pm and 2:20pm.

Either walk down to Park Halt or come on the train! Enjoy a guided stroll to the Park Visitor Centre and Cafe, through the splendour that is the carpet of Bluebells in Middleton woods. The walk will take aproximately 40 mins, and is up and down hill and could be on unsurfaced paths – so please wear sensible shoes and dress for the weather.
