A Wild about Woodcraft event at Stanwick Lakes

Get some fresh air this Easter and take your family to Stanwick Lakes for some holiday fun. There is something for everyone, including the popular Wild about Woodcraft event, a family bird walk and an Easter Egg hunt.

Over the Easter weekend from Friday to Monday, April 3-6, families can enjoy an outdoor Easter Egg hunt – just follow the trail and solve the clues to win a small chocolate egg.

A host of traditional wood crafters will be at the country park on Wednesday and Thursday, April 8-9, between 11am and 4pm, sharing their skills with visitors at the Wild about Woodcraft event. You can watch chainsaw carvers create sculptures, a bodger and a willow weaver in action and try your hand at wood carving with a chisel and hammer.

Stanwick Lakes is well known for its bird life and on Sunday, April 19, there is the first in a series of Family Bird Walks, led by local ornithologist Bob Webster. Bob will help you spot and identify some of the resident and migrant birds found in and around the lakes – don’t forget to bring binoculars. Book your place by ringing the visitor centre on 01933 625522.
